CFP: Cinematicity: City and Cinema after Deleuze
  • Location: Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and Imperial College London
    • RGS-IBG: 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR (Registration & helpdesk)
    • Imperial College London: Exhibition Road, London, SW7 2AZ
  • Dates: Tuesday 26 to Friday 29 August 2014
  • Theme: Geographies of co-production
This session focuses on the ‘co-production’ of filmic and urban space. That term, as it features in the conference theme, relates to knowledge – proposing that ‘new encounters are disrupting conceptions of where knowledge resides.’ Engaging Deleuze’s discussions of cinema, this session questions the framing of co-production in terms of dwelling. The reciprocal presupposition of cinema and city would seem, rather, to embody a sense of becoming. Thus, Deleuze’s conceptions of the cinemas of the movement-image and time-image recall Lewis Mumford’s claim that, ‘In the city, time becomes visible.’ How does cinema think the city, and vice-versa, to generate new, transformative senses of cinematicity? Contributions exploring the connections between cinematic and urban space are invited, potentially including work on early cinema and living pictures; considerations of specific cities, films or genres; conceptions of city and cinema as spiritual automata; and a multiplicity of other creative conceptualizations of cinematicity.Please send abstracts of no more than 200 words by 14th February
