The Freedman Lecture Series presents: "Coppola Sounds out Hitchcock," by Prof. James Chandler

Gerber Lounge, 304 EPB

We're looking forward to the Freedman Lecture from Long-Romanticist James Chandler, author most recently of An Archaeology of Sympathy: the Sentimental Mode in Literature and Cinema.  In a radical shift of gears from Laurence Sterne and Frank Capra, and tapping into his ongoing work on allusion and intertextuality across media from Wordsworth to Ken Loach, Chandler’s lecture (see attached PDF) is titled "Coppola Sounds out Hitchcock: Vertigo in The Conversation." In addition to his role as Director of the Franke Institute from his home base in English at the University of Chicago, James Chandler is also a member and former chair of the Chicago’s Department of Cinema and Media Studies. He was elected in 2014 to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Given the evidence of past visits from Professor Chandler, this lecture should be not just compelling in itself but of wide interest.  See you there!
