FAMS Speaker Series is back for fall 2023, kicking off with the following event:

Lalitha Gopalan “Archive To Gallery” 4:10 p.m. Sept. 27 • Media 2, 248 N. Third St., Arts Campus • MORE

Lalitha Gopalan is an associate professor at the University of Texas at Austin, department of radio, television, and film.

“…It is one matter to identify the practice of expanded cinema but it’s quite a different matter, perhaps more challenging, to translate those practices into a form that is attentive to the works. How to approach a film, when to leave a video, and how to meander through a gallery space are some of the pathways adopted in this presentation, modes of exploration that return to the act of writing.”

Other events to come:

Assistant Prof. Pardis Dabashi from Bryn Mawr will be giving a talk on her upcoming book: Losing the Plot: Film and Feeling in the Modern Novel (Chicago, 2023). 4:10 p.m. Oct. 19 • Landis Cinema, Buck Hall • MORE

Assistant Prof. Kartik Nair from Temple University will be giving a talk on his forthcoming book: Seeing Things: Spectral Materialities of Bombay Horror (UC Press, 2024). 4:10 p.m. Nov. 8 • Media 2, 248 N. Third St., Arts Campus • MORE
