Women and Film in Africa Conference: Overcoming Social Barriers
2011. July 19. 12:51
This is a 1st Call for Papers for a conference on the contemporary and historical
role played by women in the film, television and video industries in Africa. From
the Arab North Africa, West Africa, Central and East Africa, through to Southern
Africa, women have emerged from the double oppression of patriarchy and colonialism to become the unsung heroines of the moving image as producers, directors, actresses, script writers, financiers, promoters, marketers and distributors of film, television and video in postcolonial Africa. Sadly, such immense contributions by women are underrepresented, both in industry debates and in academic research.
