The French New Wave Turns 60: New Critical and Historical Perspectives
The French New Wave Turns 60: New Critical and Historical Perspectives

    The 1959 Cannes Film Festival famously launched la nouvelle vague with the premieres of The 400 Blows, Hiroshima mon Amour, and Black Orpheus, plus intense press coverage of the films and brash personalities behind the ongoing, youthful renewal of French cinema. But, what should we think of the New Wave 60 years later?

    This panel will present innovative perspectives on the French New Wave, including pertinent ways to revisit how the nouvelle vague is historicized and taught. Panelists may want to confront the era’s historical, critical, aesthetic, and/or economic contexts, including the “cinema of quality,” rethink its canonical members, evaluate gender relations on and off screen, investigate test cases of pertinent soundtracks, performances, and technology, and/or analyze nouvelle vague storytelling via narrative and cognitive theory approaches.  

    Please send 200-word abstracts and a short bio-blurb to Richard Neupert, neupert@uga.edu, by Friday, August 10th.
