Richard Dyer conference (Bordeaux)

I was very pleased to be a speaker at a conference organised in honour of Richard Dyer at the University of Bordeaux-Montaigne.


The three days of the conference covered all of the areas that Richard has worked on. My own contribution focused on songs in the cinema: ‘De l’utopie en-chantée à la chanson-cristal dans Call Me by Your Name’.

At the end of the conference Richard was made Doctor Honoris Causa of the university, and gave an oration that was superbly illustrated with clips and screen captures.
