CFP : Spotlight on the mine. When cinema and literature take hold of the subject. Centre Historique Minier de Lewarde, France.
As part of the exhibition organised around this theme, the Centre Historique Minier has launched a call for papers for an international conference Spotlight on the mine, when cinema and literature take hold of the subject. In the contemporary era, mining has formed the subject of numerous artistic performances, particularly in the fields of writing and literature (mine novel, testimony, poetry, comic strip …), on the one hand, as well as in the world of cinema and audiovisual arts (fiction, documentary, animated film …). These representations have served as a place of artistic innovation, as well as a medium for mass culture (which developed alongside the mining industry), to such an extent that veritable sub-genres (the mine novel, the mine film) have been created, each with their own archetypes.
