Acting and Mise-en-Scène
Acting and actors have long been understood as elements of mise-en-scène in film studies.  In various ways, this assumption encouraged a neglect of acting in formalist and theoretical approaches alike. Many scholars have sought to redress this neglect in recent years, focusing on the particularity of film acting, for example, or, the legibility of a variety of acting styles, while often challenging classical notions of realism in narrative cinema. The time seems ripe to reconsider the nature of the relationship between acting and mise-en-scène. Any approach is welcome. Please send a 200-300 word proposal and short bio to Katherine Kinney at by August 10, 2018.
