[Report] Michael Raine, Film as a 'Synthetic Art'

24 February, 2011 Mark ROBERTS, Visiting Speaker Series Permalink

On December 14th, Michael Raine (University of Chicago) gave a presentation entitled Film as a 'Synthetic Art': Imitation, Copyright Infringement, and Masquerade in the Toho Film Musical. As a point of departure, Raine invites us to consider the theme of "deprovincializing film studies", not merely in the sense of exploring non-Western theories of film, but by recalling alternatives to auteurist and political modernist approaches to the study of cinema. This inquiry was developed through an intellectual exchange with Miriam Hansen, in particular around the concept of "vernacular modernism".
