CALL FOR PAPERS: LINA WERTMÜLLER SYMPOSIUM


The Centre for Research and Media Education (CREAM) at the University of Westminster invites proposals for a one-day symposium on the cinema of Lina Wertmüller.

The one-day symposium will take place on December 13th, 2019, Regent Street Campus, and will be followed by a 6.30pm screening at the Regent Street Cinema.

The first woman to ever receive an Academy Award nomination for best director for her 1975 film Pasqualino Settebellezze (“Seven Beauties”), Lina Wertmüller has rarely been granted the attention she so richly deserves, by both audiences and critics.  Often labelled controversial and transgressive, her films are indeed quintessentially political, addressing matters of class and gender in a bold and innovative manner. A truly original voice in an Italian landscape dominated by male filmmakers, Wertmüller’s cinema tackles challenging topics with irony and levity, producing unforgettably tragi-comic results. 

This year Lina Wertmuller’s artistic accomplishments have been recognised on the international stage. In May, the restored version of Pasqualino Settebellezze premiered at Cannes Film Festival and news recently broke that the director will be awarded an Oscars for career achievement at the 11th annual Governors Awards ceremony of the Academy in October. 

In London, the Barbican has dedicated Wertmüller a programme as part of their new strand Hidden Figures, which celebrates directors neglected in film history. The season, titled ‘Love and Anarchy’, took place 6-31 March 2019 and saw the screening of four of Wertmüller’s films, as well as a documentary about the director:

This one-day symposium aims to bring together scholars in the field of film and gender studies to engage with the work of Wertmüller. We invite conference-style papers of 15-20 minutes, which focus on aspects of her cinemas. 
In particular, we welcome proposals on (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Lina Wertmuller’s representation of gender relations 
- Lina Wertmüller and the Italian film industry
- Lina Wertmüller and production practices
- The evolution of Giancarlo Giannini and Mariangela Melato’s characters in Lina Wertmüller’s films
- Lina Wertmüller and politics
- Character actors and the Commedia all’Italiana in Lina Wertmüller’s films
- The artistic collaboration between Lina Wertmüller and Enrico Job  
- Lina Wertmüller’s portrayal of masculinity
- Lina Wertmüller’s portrayal of femininity
- The impact Lina Wertmüller on the 1970’s American New Wave - and other contemporaneous cinemas
- Lina Wertmüller’s relationship to feminist contemporaneous film practices
- The reception of Lina Wertmüller’s films, both in Italy and abroad
