Global Circulations of Film Theory

Widening the lens on film discourse

The Global Circulations of Film Theory network comprises a group of international scholars who work on African, Asian, European, Latin American, and Soviet film theory, and who share a common critique of film theory’s western imperialist foundations.

The overarching aim of the network is not only to broaden through widescale collaborative research the understanding of what theory is and can do; it is also to set the agenda for how theory might continue to circulate in the light of our global approach.
