Approaching the Cinematic City: Three London Journeys


With illustrations from a wide range of films, Charlotte Brunsdon will
explore London as a cinematic city through the journeys that are made to
and within it. She will discuss  the extent to which 'the arrival in the
city' or 'crossing the River' can be used as structuring devices to
understand not just the cinematic geographies of particular films, but
something of the history of London as a cinematic city as it comes to
terms with the end of empire.


Charlotte Brunsdon is Professor of Film and Television Studies at the
University of Warwick and has published widely in the fields of film,
television and cultural studies. Her books include London in Cinema: The
Cinematic City since 1945 (London: British Film Institute, 2007); The
Feminist, the Housewife and the Soap Opera Oxford, The Clarendon Press,
2000 (Selected by Choice as an outstanding academic book of 2000);
Screen Tastes: Soap Opera to Satellite Dishes (London: Routledge, 1997);
Feminist Television Criticism (co-editor, with Julie D'Acci and Lynn
Spigel) Oxford, The Clarendon Press, 1997 and Everyday Television:
Nationwide (co-authored with David Morley) BFI books, 1982. 


Communications and Transport: Towards a Materialist Communication


This lecture will outline a new research agenda for an approach to a non
media-centric, materialist communications studies, which defines its
concerns as encompassing not only the movement of information, but also
that of people and commodities. Building on current work in cultural
geography, and on the `spatial turn' in cultural studies, David Morley
will argue for a new paradigm for the study of communications which
attends to both its material and symbolic dimensions and re-integrates
the study of transport systems within its remit, thus returning the
discipline to the full range of its classical concerns.


David Morley is Professor of Communications in the Dept of Media and
Communications, Goldsmiths College, University of London. He is the
author of Spaces of Identity: Global Media, Electronic Landscapes and
Cultural Boundaries (Routledge 1995, with K Robins); Home Territories:
Media, Mobility and Identity (Routledge 2001) and most recently, Media,
Modernity and Technology (Routledge 2006).
