Marking the centennial of the birth of French film critic and theorist André Bazin, Bazin@100 seeks to assess the current situation of thinking about his work as both a historical figure and a media theorist whose work remains vital to thinking about cinema (and other media) today. Showcasing Hervé Joubert-Laurencin's feature-length reconstruction of Bazin’s unfinished film, as well as the upcoming publication of Bazin Écrits, the conference brings together a range of scholars working on different aspects of Bazin’s work and its implications. Featured speakers include Joubert-Laurencin and Dudley Andrew (Yale University). Click here to see a full schedule.
Presented by the Department of Cinema and Media Studies with support from the Franke Institute for the Humanities, the Committee on Social Thought, the Department of Art History, the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, and the Film Studies Center
