Thinking Cinema 2018-19

Lisa Nakamura, Professor of American Culture at the University of Michigan, will present a lecture in February.

The Committee for Film Studies announces the second iteration of the “Thinking Cinema” lecture series for the 2018-19 academic year.

The five part year-long series will host some of the most provocative thinkers of media archaeologies, cinematic affects, race and digital media and experimental cinema.

This year we welcome the following speakers:

November 29, 2018: Laura U. Marks

February 20, 2019; Lisa Nakamura

March 12, 2019: Rey Chow

April 30, 2019: Erika Balsom

The first series brought to campus an eclectic range of speakers whose research interests span temporal and regional frames but who share a commitment to critical film and media analysis. Read about the 2017-18 series here.
