Professor Nouri Gana will be speaking in Munich at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität for a “Histories of Arab Documentary” conference. Taking place October 27-29, the event is described as follows.
The conference Histories of Arab Documentary wants to examine the diverse histories of film documentary in the MENA region since the 1920s and to serve as a platform for investigating different theoretical approaches with regards to a number of queries, that is: structural development and state intervention, formats and aesthetics, new media, politics of representation, auteurs and subjectivity, „Artivism“ and Revolution. It will allow film professionals from the region and international academic researchers to meet and exchange on their respective topics. Herewith it will unearth and propel some of the hitherto unrecognized scholarly work in the field and to shed light on a neglected part of general film history.
