New Nightmares: Issues and Themes in Contemporary Horror Cinema and Horror Film Criticism
Confirmed keynote speakers:
Jay McRoy (University of Wisconsin)
Julian Petley (Brunel University)
Horror has been an area that has been at the forefront of a number of shifts within film studies, in particular the study of consumption, audiences and the industrial production of cinema. In light of this, this international conference, jointly organised by Manchester Metropolitan University and The University of Salford will promote dialogue and discussion around two areas:
- contemporary issues relating to the study of horror cinema
- developments in the genre over the last 10 years.
The conference organising committee is: Emily Brick and David Huxley of the Faculty of Art & Design, MMU, Ben Halligan and Andy Willis, University of Salford.
