Cine-Lit 9—A conference on Hispanic Cinema and Literature
March 9-11, 2019 Founded in 1990, Cine-Lit is the continuing, cooperative organization between the University of Oregon, Portland State University, and Oregon State University that, in conjunction with the Portland International Film Festival, organizes an international symposium on Hispanic film and literature every 3-4 years. The conference is held at the UO PDX and PSU.
This 9th edition highlights the theme of WOMEN (women filmmakers, representations of women and genders and so on).
New for 2019 is a campaign to create two conference sessions dedicated to the presentation of Eugene undergraduate research on Hispanic cinema and culture. A second initiative new for 2019 is that peer-reviewed articles based on conference papers from 2015 (and, later for 2019) will be published in a special issue of the new UO-based academic journal Peripherica.
- Over three days, professors, graduate and undergraduate students share their research on the relationship between cinema and literature. They also participate in workshops, attend roundtable discussions by the writers and cineastes invited by the symposium, and listen to the keynotes. All meetings are free and open to the public.
- Each afternoon and evening speakers and audiences have to opportunity to watch the latest Hispanic films featured at the Portland International Film Festival in connection to the themes discussed at the conference.
- One highlight is the presence of the Hispanic directors invited by Cine-Lit and whose films are featured by the Festival. Cine-Lit participants and our university students interact with these invited artists.
