This conference brings together a transnational array of leading scholars to engage and develop conversations about key issues in the theory of transnational film/media while also reflecting on the academic field of transnational film/media studies itself. These conversations explore theory, terminologies, media studies and the disciplines, literary adaptation, aesthetics, and film schools from a transnational perspective.
