Cinema has become a battle ground upon which history is made – a major  
mass medium of the twentieth century dealing with history. The  
re-enactments of historical events in film straddle reality and  
fantasy, documentary and fiction, representation and performance,  
entertainment and education. The filmic forms of collective cultural  
memory offer wide-ranging research possibilities in the fields of  
history, film, media and cultural studies.

This interdisciplinary conference aims to explore the changing modes,  
impacts and functions of screen images dealing with history with the  
case study of Korean cinema. The relationship between film and history  
and the links between historical research and filmic presentations of  
history will be examined by scholars from nine countries, researching  
in literature, history, Korean culture, film and media studies, as  
well as by the keynote speaker Professor Hong-Joon Kim of Korea  
National University of Arts. Celebrating the 10. London Korean Film  
Festival in London, Korean film directors will make a special panel  

The event is free and open to the public. We encourage participants to  
register in advance to guarantee a place.
