Registration is now open for ‘Moving Image and Institution: Cinema and the Museum in the 21st Century’, Fitzwilliam College, University of Cambridge, 6-8 July 2011.
Hosted by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CRASSH), the conference seeks to establish a new international forum for discussion of the physical and theoretical intersections between cinema, screen media and the moving image, and the museum and institutional art space.

Confirmed plenary speakers:
Professor Angela Dalle Vacche (Professor of Film Studies at the Georgia
Institute of Technology in Atlanta)
Professor Laura U. Marks (Dena Wosk University Professor of Art and Culture
Studies, Simon Fraser University)
