      British Cinema in the 1960s: Histories and Legacies

      This two-day conference explores one of the most dynamic decades of British cinema history and comes at the culmination of the Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded project ‘Transformation and Tradition in Sixties British Cinema’ run by the Universities of York and East Anglia. It brings together academic researchers and creative practitioners with personal experience of the period to discuss how we construct histories of the era's cinema and how might we understand its legacies.
