The symposium aims to create a conversation that will help us both to think across the “and” of Cinema and Media Studies within one of the areas of the field that is often delimited by geography, and to think about how the field of Cinema and Media Studies could better integrate the current work and questions being done within African film and media scholarly arena into the core pedagogical and scholarly frameworks, including introductory and methods courses.

This symposium, free and open to the public, has been made possible thanks to the Dick Wolf Cinema and Media Studies Fund. It has been organized by Karen Redrobe, Elliot and Roslyn Jaffe Professor of History of Art and Cinema and Media Studies, with the assistance of Nicola M. Gentili.
