The European Network for Cinema and Media Studies (NECS) is holding its 2014 conference from June 19 to 21 at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan. This year’s edition, called Creative Energies, Creative Industries, welcomes over 500 participants from all over the world, including a delegation from Concordia University.
Indeed, a group of seven concordians will be representing us at this important gathering. You can find the list of presenters below, as well as a copy of the programme. If we’re lucky, we might even get a write-up of the conference from some of the presenters. Fingers crossed and good luck to all our presenters.
