Announcing the 11th Women and the Silent Screen Conference, June 2021!

Women & Film History International and Columbia University’s School for the Arts are delighted to announce that the 11th Women and the Silent Screen Conference will take place at Columbia University in New York City, with the topic Women, Cinema, and World Migration. Screenings and events will be held in two new state-of-the-art theatres with 35mm archival projection–the Lenfest Center for the Arts in West Harlem and the Fort Lee Film Commission’s Barrymore Theatre across the river in New Jersey. Between 1910 and 1920, many workers in the new film industry lived in the New York boroughs and took the ferry from 125th Street across the Hudson to work in Ft. Lee.

Tentative dates: June 2-12, 2021

Conference coordinators: Jane Gaines and Hilary Hallett

Stay tuned for the Call for Papers!
