From 30 to 31 October, the Shanghai Graduate Students Academic Forum & the 14th Yangtze River Delta Graduate Students Academic Forum on Theatre, Film and Television was successfully held in our university, which was sponsored by the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission and organized by the Graduate School of our university. On the morning of 30 October, the opening ceremony of the Forum was held in the conference room of Foxi Building.

Due to the impact of the pandemic, this year’s forum continued to adopt the previous year’s format of having two conference venues both online and offline. The theme of this year’s forum was "Integration, Crossover and Overlapping". Professor Shen Liang, dean of the Graduate School of our university, delivered the welcome speech. Professor Qu Fengguo of our university delivered a keynote speech. Professor Yang Junlei from Fudan University, Associate Professor Chen Tian from Nanjing University, Professor Shen Jiayi from East China Normal University and Professor Zhi Yunbo from our university formed the expert panel for this year’s forum.

The 2021 Yangtze River Delta Graduate Students Academic Forum on Theatre, Film and Television issued the call for papers in June, and received 114 papers from doctoral and master's students from 49 universities across the country. After careful review and screening by the forum’s organizing committee, 48 papers were selected for presentation at the forum. The forum had six presentation sessions in two days during which the speakers expressed their opinions on the theme of "Integration, Crossover and Overlapping", broke the boundaries of space through online and offline participation, and sought common ground while reserving differences and achieved mutual promotion in the warm discussions. And, the members of the expert panel gave comprehensive and detailed summary and comments on the paper of each speaker.

Subject to the review and recommendation by the expert panel, 13 graduate students won the excellent paper award of this year’s graduate students academic forum. The 14th Yangtze River Delta Graduate Students Academic Forum on Theatre, Film and Television came to an end in applause. According to the statistics of the live broadcast platforms, more than 2,300 people watched the live broadcast of the forum online in two days. The number of more than 100 papers submitted and the number of more than 2,000 online viewers of the forum all reached a record high. The Yangtze River Delta Graduate Students Academic Forum on Theatre, Film and Television, which has been held for 14 consecutive years, has become a highly influential graduate students academic forum in China. We hope that more and more young students will come out of and grow up from the academic forum, and become the backbone of theatre, film and television disciplines.
