An Evening with Kelly Conway and Eric Hoyt: Messages on Global Movie Magazine Networks

"In this presentation, we look forward to sharing our work in digitizing and researching global movie magazines as part of the 'Globalizing and Enhancing the Media History Digital Library' initiative, funded by an ACLS Digital Extension Grant. While movie magazines are frequently cited as sources, they are far less often centered as the objects of study. By analyzing specific magazines such as Pour Vous, Cinéma 55, and Gente de Cine for their hybridity and heterogeneity, and by situating these publications globally as part of an exchange of information and ideas about cinema, our work seeks to reframe and expand our field’s understanding of historic movie magazines."
