New Perspectives on Early Cinema History is a selection of papers originally presented at an international conference held in Ghent, Belgium in 2018, organised by this book’s editors: Mario Slugan, a lecturer in film studies at Queen Mary, University of London (and a former editor at Apparatus), and Daniël Biltereyst, a professor of film and media studies at Ghent University and director of its centre for film and media studies. The eleven essays – written mainly by European academics, plus two from Canada and one from Malaysia – provide an excellent overview of new trends.
