Event details

A day of celebration and scholarly discussions of Pam Cook's writings.

Salome (1923)

Pam Cook (Professor Emerita at Southampton) has been shaping the field of Film Studies since the 1970s. Her groundbreaking Cinema Book (first published in 1985) remains a standard in film curricula the world over, while her many influential interventions have covered subjects such as feminist criticism, the history of popular cinema; the intersection between screen cultures, fashion, and design; stardom; and nostalgia.  During the day event colleagues, friends, and former students celebrate and discuss Pam's work in the context of the changing face of Film Studies, while Pam herself will talk about her latest research project. There will also be an opportunity to watch the silent film Salome (1923). The event is open to everybody.
