22 June 2021, 14.00 -19.00 EEST

The aim of this workshop is to discuss the relevance of an intermedial approach to the study of world cinema. We bring together scholars working in different parts of the world who have been engaged in extensive researches in the past few years that fit under the umbrella defined by these keywords and who have produced exciting new books, along with several journal issues and articles (with more on the way). Through short individual reflections and a round-table style debate, we intend not only to showcase the major findings of these researchers by summarizing the results and highlighting the specific areas that they have covered, but also to dissect key issues that have emerged through their work.

The workshop will officially launch our own book, Caught In-Between. Intermediality in Contemporary Eastern European and Russian Cinema (edited by Ágnes Pethő, published by Edinburgh University Press, 2020), a collection of essays that explores intermediality as a new perspective in the interpretation of the cinemas that have emerged after the collapse of the former Eastern bloc.

In addition, discussions be based on the following publications presented by their authors:

The event is planned as a relaxed, friendly meeting and exchange of ideas among scholars working in the similar field, as well as a possible source of inspiration for further endeavours.

Organizers: The Centre for Cinematic Intermediality and Visual Culture, Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania in collaboration with the Regional Committee in Cluj of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

The meeting is held via Zoom.
