The aim of this conference is to debate, from a gender, ethical, interdisciplinary and digital perspective, the concerns that the new generation of film historians have in relation to the global dynamics that challenge Eurocentric and Western discourses and which promote plural and heterogeneous ways of thinking.

The conference will bring together researchers from all over the world and will have the participation of the most prestigious speakers in this field. Specifically, Malte Hagener (Philipps-Universität Marburg), Masha Salazkina (Concordia University), Valeria Camporesi (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid), Georgina Torello (Universidad de Uruguay), Julia Noordegraf (University of Amsterdam), Daniela Treveri Gennari (Oxford Brookes University), Michael Cowan (Iowa University) and Rielle Navitski (Georgia University), who will discuss the most relevant theoretical and methodological issues of this meeting in four round tables.

The rest of the interventions on cinema and gender, cinema history and digital perspectives, cinema and the global south or the history of cineclubs can be heard in various presentations spread over nine sessions.
