We are pleased to announce the 10th Kinema Club, to take place in Honolulu, from July 30 (Friday) to August 1 (Sunday). This will be a large conference with simultaneous panels. Presenters will give 20 minute papers; pre-constituted panels are welcome, but all are encouraged to apply. We also invite proposals for discussants (a role that may help some acquire travel funds to attend). As with KCII in 2003, we will hold the conference at the East - West Center, and follow the daily panels with koryukai at the official Kinema Club Beach Bar.
While Kinema Club is devoted to Japanese moving image study, we welcome papers and panels on the global dimensions of Japanese film and television culture — from colonial era cinema to transnational co-production to international reception contexts. Colleagues specializing in other areas of the region, or the world for that matter, are encouraged to join us.
