Kathleen Loock, Alejandra Bulla, Yining Zhang, and Stefan Dierkes of the HOLLYWOOD MEMORIES project are part of the 2024 NECS conference in Izmir, Turkey, from June 27-29.

NECS (European Network for Cinema and Media Studies) is a non-profit organization aiming to foster high-level and innovative research in film and media theory, history and practice, to provide a forum for communication, exchange and scholarly debate, to support young and early-career researchers, and to establish film and media studies as a dynamic and important part of the arts and humanities research in Europe, but also increasingly world-wide.

For this year’s conference topic of “Emergencies”, Kathleen Loock and Yining Zhang will give a talk on “Emerging Audiences: Generational Receptions of Hollywood Movies in China.” Alejandra Bulla’s talk is on “Living on the Margins of Hollywood: Negotiations of Belonging among Mexican Audiences,” and Stefan Dierkes’ talk is on “Seniorenkinos as Form of Resistance? A German Case Study of an Emerging Exhibition Format.” They are joined in the panel by a presentation from Daylenis Blanco Lobaina and Associated Member Philippe Meers. Their talk is called “Hollywood and the Cuban Oriente: The Curious Case of American films in the Cinema Culture of Santiago de Cuba 1950s-1960s”. The panel is hosted by Vinzenz Hediger, professor of Film studies from Goethe-Universität Frankfurt.
