-

Location: Hesburgh Center for International Studies-Auditorium

Visiting professor Sophia A. McClennen from Penn State University will be presenting her latest work, “Globalization and Latin American Cinema: Toward a New Critical Paradigm” (2018), which examines films such as Cidade de Deus (2002), Diarios de motocicleta (2004), and Sleep Dealer (2008), and uses cinema to argue for new ways of understanding the relationship between global economies and national cultures. This is a truly innovative and interdisciplinary study, and it will offer new topics of discussion for students and faculty in Romance Languages, Film, Television, & Theatre, Economics, Political Science, and History, to name a few departments.  Mcclennen Poster
