Roger Beebe, "Meaning and Material: Two Forms of Film Research"
Date: Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017
Location: Faculty Club, ABCD Rooms (2nd Floor)
Time: 5-6:30 p.m.
Host: College of Arts and Sciences
This presentation explores the two poles of Art Professor Roger Beebe's film work: one focused on a material investigation into the basic properties of the medium of film, and the other a more essayistic practice concerned with the transformation of physical and mediated landscapes by the forces of global capital.
Each year, the Arts and Humanities celebrate faculty who have recently been promoted to the rank of professor by asking each to present a public lecture on his or her body of research or creative activity and current projects. All lectures are held at the Faculty Club, ABCD Rooms (2nd floor). Wednesday lectures are from 5-6:30 p.m., and Friday lectures are from 2-3:30 p.m. A reception will accompany each lecture. All are free and open to the public.
