Film-Philosophy Conference 2012

Kingston, KCL and QMUL

September 12-14, 2012


Film-philosophy continues to grow as an important discipline within the fields of both Film Studies and Philosophy. The Film-Philosophy Conference brings together scholars from all over the world to present their research on a broad range of topics within the subject area.

The 2012 conference will take place September 12-14, and will be jointly hosted by King’s College London, Queen Mary, University of London and Kingston University.

Papers on any relevant topic will be considered but we particularly welcome abstracts in the following areas:

– Hitchcock and film-philosophy

– New approaches to film and philosophy

– Considerations of individual films

– The debate between continental and analytic philosophy in relation to film

– Films about philosophy or philosophers

– Film and phenomenology

– Significant auteurs

– Studies of individual philosophers and their relationship with film

– The methodology of film-philosophy

– Ethics

– Cognitivism

– Film style

– Genre

– Media convergence

Abstracts should be 200 – 300 words long and papers, including clips – which we strongly encourage – should not exceed 25 minutes. We accept panel submissions with a maximum of three speakers and a length of 90 minutes.

Fees will be announced shortly.

You must register a free account with the conference website in order to submit a proposal.

Both individual and panel proposals must be submitted through the conference website (no initial cost involved): http://www.film-philosophy.com/conference/index.php/conf/2012/about/submissions
