Styles & Personalities, Genres & Histories
The 2014 Film & History Conference
The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor’s Club
Madison, WI (USA)
29 October - 2 November, 2014
A "golden age" typically represents success, but what attitudes--contemporary and current--define that success? Genres can have golden ages, as screwball comedy did in the 1930s and film noir in the 1940s, but how do we separate the deliberate work of their creators from the complex push and pull of historical forces? What secret golden ages await discovery, buried under misunderstanding or lurking in the shadows of more celebrated eras of film history?
