Film-Philosophy Conference 2014: A World of Cinemas

University of Glasgow

July 2, 2014 – July 4, 2014

The Film-Philosophy Conference 2014 will be hosted by Film and Television Studies at the University of Glasgow. This year, our focus is on the conference theme: A World of Cinemas.


In recognition of the consolidation of film-philosophy as a vibrant and steadily growing interdisciplinary field, F-P2014 will focus attention on the global context in which film-philosophical enquiry takes place. This will begin the process of broadening the scope of our research to greater encompass a world of cinemas and philosophies.
