Kinema Club VII
Date: March 24-26, 2006
Place: Yale University

Call for Papers

The seventh edition of the Kinema Club conference in Japanese film and 
moving image studies will be held at Yale University from March 24 to 
26, 2006. This session will be subtitled “Revival, Regimen and Recent 
Japanese Cinema” and will focus on recent trends in Japanese cinema, 
especially as they relate to government film policy and film education. 
The main guest will be Kurosawa Kiyoshi, film director and professor at 
the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music.

The conference will not be as big as Kinema Club V in Tokyo. There will 
only be four or five panels, each with fewer presenters, and none held 
simultaneously. We plan to have one panel on Kurosawa Kiyoshi and/or 
contemporary Japanese horror cinema, and another roundtable session on 
film education and policy; other sessions will present research in 
recent Japanese film, television and other moving image media. We 
welcome proposals for presentations on any of these panels, as well as 
for pre-constituted panels. We would like to make papers for the 
Kurosawa panel available beforehand; for other papers we would like 
presenters to prepare a one to two page outline for distribution.

Those interested in presenting should send a one paragraph abstract to 
aaron.gerow at by December 16, 2005.

Anyone interested in Japanese cinema and other moving image media is 
welcome to participate. KC VII will be primarily funded by the Council 
on East Asian Studies at Yale University, so there will be no 
registration fee. We plan to show two of Kurosawa’s films (on March 23, 
in a pre-event, and March 25), with the director present, as well as 
invite a keynote speaker. Unfortunately, there are not enough funds to 
support the travel or accommodations of other participants, although we 
hope to have enough buffets to keep everyone from getting hungry.

Any questions or inquires should be directed to Aaron Gerow at
