CfC - 1968 and German Cinema - Christina Gerhardt and Marco Abel, eds.

Type: 
Call for Papers
Subject Fields: 
Film and Film History, German History / Studies, European History / Studies, Art, Art History & Visual Studies

This proposed volume seeks to examine how West and East German cinema engaged the events of "1968"—events whose 50th anniversary are rapidly approaching. While scholars have written extensively on Young German Cinema, New German Cinema, and DEFA cinema, relatively little sustained scholarly attention has thus far been paid to how West and East German cinema participated in—took place in, shaped, and reflected on—the ear-defining revolutionary happenings.
