The Great War and the Moving Image

University of Kent, Canterbury

15 - 16 April 2014

An international conference organised by the University of Kent in conjunction with the University of Southampton and in association with the Imperial War Museum and The Western Front Association.

This interdisciplinary conference will explore the Great War through all forms of moving images including cinema, television and computer games. It will bring together international scholars and heritage professionals to examine the ways genres have translated across media and how images were received, creating popular understandings of the war and feeding into wider commemorative processes. The moving image will be examined in terms of circulation, distribution and representation.

This will be the first major international conference of its kind to explore these issues and it aims to identify further research synergies, forming the basis for future collaboration.
