International symposium 'The Structure of Film Experience'

Wanneer:do 23-11-2017 16:00
Waar:Goethe-Universität/Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main

Jean-Pierre Meunier's Les structures de l'experience filmique: L'identification filmique from 1969 is a key text in the history of film studies. The symposium will address the role of Meunier's book in the history of film theory. It will discuss the continuing relevance of the seminal categories and concepts Meunier proposes for the history of film phenomenology and contemporary film studies. It will search for the book's philosophical underpinnings and the role the book played in the history of film phenomenology. And it will explore new directions in film theory opened up by Meunier's work.


The symposium is organized by the Department of Theater, Film and Media Studies of Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (Prof. Dr. Vinzenz Hediger) and the Department of Arts, Culture and Media at the University of Groningen (Prof. Dr. Julian Hanich) in cooperation with the Permanent Seminar on Histories of Film Theories and the Städelschule - Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste.

The event is made possible through the generous support of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, the Vereinigung der Freunde und Förderer der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main, the Stiftung zur Förderung der internationalen wissenschaftlichen Beziehungen der Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität and the Groningen Research Institute for the Study of Culture (ICOG).
