EISENSTEIN, EAST ASIA: TRANSMEDIALITY
Cinema has become an increasingly transmedial experience involving different sensory forms of expression and the need to understand how different media interact, on both cognitive, affective levels, has never been greater. The pioneering filmmaker and film theorist Sergei Eisenstein’s work explored this transmediality as early as the 1920s. This symposium, hosted by UNSW and the Cinematic Thinking Network, brings together a group of eminent scholars of international standing whose interest and/or expertise lies in either directly exploring the issue of transmediality in Eisenstein’s thought, especially in its East Asian influences, or considering its legacy in subsequent film-philosophical debates.
