Professor Randall Halle, University of Pittsburgh
Workshop and Public Talk

Monday, November 17, 2014

4:00pm, Pugh Hall 120
Public talk: “Creative Europe: Visual Culture From National to European Style”

Abstract:
Europeanization is a term of social scientific analysis largely ignored by the humanities; moreover, Europeanization has been a term largely associated with economic and political transformations within the expanding EU and not an explicit question of culture. However, with the start of 2014, the new Creative Europe program has come into effect, and it has already had a deep impact on cultural production across the EU and well beyond its borders. The program seeks to harmonize and synergize the cultural and creative sectors across Europe, recognizing them as playing a “big role in the European economy.” This cultural policy produces what we can identify as culture industry 2.0. Thus, attention to the program calls upon both social scientists and humanists to develop new paradigms of understanding European culture.

10:40–12:35am, Ustler 108
Workshop “Researching Film Funding: The European Case”
The hands-on workshop is geared toward graduate students in Film and Media Studies but also open to graduate students in other fields who research the impact of cultural policies as well as interested faculty members and advanced undergraduate students. Please bring your laptops (but no tablets). As seating is limited, please reserve a seat by emailing Barbara Mennel at mennel@ufl.edu by November 1, 2014.

Randall Halle is the Klaus W. Jonas Professor of German Film and Cultural Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. He has published The Europeanization of Cinema: Interzones and Imaginative Communities (2014), German Film after Germany: Toward a Transnational Aesthetic (2008), Queer Social Philosophy: Critical Readings from Kant to Adorno (2004). He has co-edited After the Avant-garde: New Directions in Experimental Film (2008), Light Motives: German Popular Film in Perspective (2003), and Marginality and Alterity in Contemporary European Cinema, and two special volumes of Camera Obscura (2001). The events are funded by the Jean Monnet Chair and the European Union-funded Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at the University of Florida and the Waldo W. Neikirk Term Professorship.
