Civil rights documentary cinema and the 1960s

This prestigious conference (in conjunction with the British Academy) focuses on films based in civil rights history and inspired by it.

It promotes a trans-Atlantic exchange of ideas around film production, activist subjects, and historical research in the making of civil rights cinema, history and cultural memory. It examines race and rights – activism, massive resistance, film and visual cultures – to intervene creatively in the history of the 1960s and in the historiography of the civil rights movement.

Cost: £120 (£35 for unwaged and undergraduate/postgraduate students).
