Conversations Across Screen Cultures, a new online initiative featuring live interviews and discussions with film and media scholars, media artists, and programmers in the Central New York region, resumes  on Tuesday September 29 at 6:30pm in an interview that features Dr. Camilo Malagón, Assistant Professor Modern Languages and Literatures, Ithaca College.

Dr. Camilo A. Malagón is Assistant Professor of Modern Languages and Literature at Ithaca College. His publications on late 20th and 21st century Latin American literature, film, and culture focus on theories of space, place, and globalization.

His research also probes the intersection of Latin American literature and world literature, ecocritical cultural criticism, women of color and Latin American feminist theory, critical theory, continental philosophy, and digital humanities. His most recent article, “Post-Conflict Visual Ecologies: Violence and Slow Violence in Chocó by Jhonny Hendrix Hinestroza and La tierra y la sombra by César Augusto Acevedo”, was published in Revista de Estudios Colombianos.

Dr. Enrique Gonzalez-Conty will conduct the interview. Dr. Gonzalez Conty is Assistant Professor of Spanish and Co-coordinator of the Latin American Studies program at Ithaca College. His research focuses on Caribbean Literature and Film, literary history, theories of the archive, and the New Latin American cinema. He is currently working his book manuscript title Archiving the Revolution: Claiming History in Cuban Literature and Film that examines the role of literature and film in the construction of the Cuban Revolutionary Filmic Archive.

The initiative is a collaboration between faculty from Ithaca College, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, the Cine con Cultura festival, and the Syracuse University Human Rights Film Festival. Sessions will feature open discussion and dialogue with students and faculty in attendance.
