CFP: Graduate Student Conference “Future Nostalgia and Present Utopia: Reimaging Futurism in Film and New Media” (University of Pittsburgh)

Deadline: July 20, 2023

The University of Pittsburgh Film and Media Studies Program is pleased to announce the twelfth Annual Graduate Student Conference“Future Nostalgia and Present Utopia: Reimaging Futurism in Film and New Media,” which will be held virtually on September 23–24, 2023. Keynote speaker: Dr. Diana Flores Ruíz (University of Washington).

The contemporary cultural landscape is notably marked by the failure of the modernist avant-garde utopia in art and politics of the twentieth century. While all sectors of cultural production have seen melancholic or alarmist responses to this crisis, new utopian imagination and futuristic projects might promise constructive alternatives. From Marvel’s Black Panther (2018) to the margins of global filmmaking and film-thinking, artists use their craft to project a future of infinite possibilities while tapping into the craft and mood of older media. This conference will explore how aesthetics and community shape our contemporary understanding of futurism and utopia in different cinematic practices from all over the globe.
