Temple University Professor Chris Cagle of the Department of Film and Media Studies published an essay on classical Hollywood cinematography from 1928-1946 in Cinematography, a book edited by Trinity University’s Patrick Keating and published by Rutgers University Press(RUP). The book is part of the RUP’s Behind the Silver Screen Series; each volume is on a separate craft in Hollywood filmmaking.
This summer, Professor Cagle also presented papers on contemporary European documentary films and practices at two conferences: the 2014 European Network for Cinema and Media Studies (NECS), and the 24th International Screen Studies Conference.
NECS Conference took place in June in Milan, Italy. NECS is a platform for exchange between scholars, archivists and programmers. The annual conference aims is to foster innovative research in film and media theory, history and practice and to provide a forum for communication, exchange and scholarly debate, to support young and early-career researchers, and to establish film and media studies as a dynamic and important part of the arts and humanities research in Europe.
Organized by the journal Screen, the 24th International Screen Studies Conference took place in June at the University of Glasgow. The main theme of this year’s Screen conference offered an opportunity to extend critical debate into the fields of landscape and the environment, with an exciting range of interdisciplinary perspectives to reflect on the real and imaginary ways that we interact with the world through the portal of the screen.
