The Department of Historical and Heritage Studies at the University of Pretoria will be hosting a "Film in history / History in film" Conference.

The conference seeks to engage with film in South Africa in the four domains, film in history, film as source of history, film as history and film as counter-archive.  The conference aims to bring together South African and international scholars working broadly in the domain of film and history in and about South Africa.  The conference is open to all scholars whose research interest is film and visual studies from a historical perspective, including research interests in the historical development of cinema (in the South African national, comparative and/or global contexts), cinema culture, audiences, festivals and reception, technologies and the business of filmmaking as well as historians working with film as history, film in history and film as [counter]archive.
