Communication studies professor Jennifer Gauthier will present her paper, “Indigenizing Sci-Fi: Native Women Filmmakers Decolonize a Genre,” at the Annual International Conference on Small Cinemas at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain. She will also serve on a panel with colleagues from New Zealand, California, and New York.
In its eighth year, the Annual International Conference on Small Cinemas is an initiative by international scholars interested in the study of small cinemas. Since its inception, the conference has brought together internationally renowned scholars and researchers from several countries, fostering the academic awareness about cinematographies usually constrained by limited visibility.
This year’s conference is themed “Diversity in Glocal Cinemas: Language, Culture, Identity.” The conference takes place Sept. 20-22.
