November 21: Dudley Andrew

Dudley Andrew, R. Selden Rose Professor of Film and Comparative Literature at Yale University, will present “The Effect of Miracles and the Miracle of Effects: Bazin’s Faith in Evolution,” an essay in progress.

Before moving to Yale in 2000, Dudley Andrew taught for thirty years at the Univ. of Iowa, directing the dissertations of many illustrious film scholars.  He began his career with three books commenting on film theory, including the biography of André Bazin, whose thought he continues to explore in What Cinema Is!, and the edited volumes Opening Bazin, and A Companion to Francois Truffaut. Soon his translation of Bazin’s writings on the New Media of the 1950s will appear.   Andrew’s interest in aesthetics and hermeneutics led to Film in the Aura of Art, 1984, and his fascination with French film and culture resulted in Mists of Regret (1995) and Popular Front Paris (2005), co-authored with Steven Ungar.  Currently completing Encountering World Cinema, his teaching and research take up 1) questions of World Cinema/literature, such as translation and adaptation, 2) issues in 20th century French intellectual life, especially theories of the image, and 3) French cinema and its literary and philosophical relations.

Please join us Friday, November 21 from 10:30 am – 12:30 am in Cobb 310.
