Film can help us think thought
A CONFERENCE AT THE SLADE SCHOOL OF ART (UCL)
WOBURN SQUARE, LONDON and a cinema in central London (tbc)
Friday March 17th and Saturday March 18th 2006.

Presentations/screenings can be performative in nature, and cross platform.
Please email 300 word abstracts for film/video papers and/or send 50-100
word synopses for film/video, plus a dvd or dv tape.
