The British Film Institute, in conjunction with the University of Southampton, will be holding a major conference in the summer of 2005 on the work and worldwide cultural influence of Charles Chaplin. This will coincide with the establishment of the BFI’s Charlie Chaplin Research Foundation which is designed to foster innovative research in relation to Chaplin and his contemporaries.
The emphasis will be on dialogue and the bringing together of archivists, researchers and scholars from a wide range of disciplines for the representation of papers and symposia to reassess Chaplin’s impact and influence on film and the arts and modern culture.
- Date of the conference: July 21-24, 2005
