On November 8th, 9th and 10th, 2023, Museum of Cinema – Tomàs Mallol Collection, Department of History and History of Art of the Universitat de Girona, the Research Unit on Early Cinema (GROC) and the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation have organised their 14th International Seminar on the Origins and History of Cinema, which will be centered around different visions of the sick body and mind.
The purpose of the 14th International Seminar on the Origins and History of Cinema is
to analyze the physical and mental pathologies’ representations in cinema and
photography from the period between the ending of 19th century and the beginning of the
20th, covering a period of 35 years (from 1885 to 1920).
As in the past editions, the Seminar will be divided in two parts that will be alternating.
The first part will be committed to theoretical reflection on the main topic with several
lectures by prominent experts, while in the second half, the goal is that different researchers expose and debate with the attendants the results of the studies they are developing in the field of pre-cinema and/or early cinema.
Moreover, a call for papers is open and proposals are now accepted for the Seminar. The deadline is on April 30th, 2023.
