Thursday, March 3 – Eugenie Brinkema

February 24th, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

Professor Eugenie Brinkema (Literature, MIT)
Violence and the Diagram (Or, The Human Centipede)
Respondent: Matt Hubbell, Department of Cinema and Media Studies
Presented in collaboration with the Contemporary European Philosophy Workshop

Thursday, March 3rd
4:306:30 pm
Cobb 104 (**note the change of location, day, and time**)

Eugenie Brinkema‘s research in film and media studies focuses on violence, affect, sexuality, aesthetics, and ethics in texts ranging from the horror film to the body of films dubbed “New European Extremism” to the visual and temporal forms of terrorism. Abiding research interests include embodiment and sensation in ultraviolent film and literature, critical and cultural theory, literary theory, and psychoanalysis and continental philosophy, while more recent areas of inquiry have explored French gastronomy, sound and color.
Her first book, The Forms of the Affects (Duke University Press, Spring 2014), interrogates the relationship between form and grief, disgust, nostalgia, anxiety, and joy in film, critical theory, psychoanalysis, and nineteenth- and twentieth-century continental philosophy.

The paper is available for download here.
Please email one of the CMS coordinators for the password: taschroeder [at] uchicago.edu or noa [at] uchicago.edu.
Please read in advance and come prepared for discussion.

*The paper and the film under discussion contain scenes of graphic violence.*

We look forward to seeing you at the workshop! Refreshments will be provided.
