Join us for Faculty Lunch #4 featuring Professor Amanda Minervini!
December 11, 2018
Gaylord Hall in the Worner Center

“Hollywood and Mussolini. Representations of the Duce in the US Media in the 20s and 30s.”

Did you know about Mussolini’s love affair with Hollywood?

Have you been wondering about the connection between stardom and political charisma?

With contemporary US and Italian politics in mind, cultural historian Amanda Minervini (French and Italian Department) has been researching representations of the Italian dictator in the international media, and in particular in the Hollywood documentary Mussolini Speaks (1933). She found evidence that his great success was based more in mediatic charisma than on any understanding of his political agenda. This research also sheds light on how the Italian Five Stars movement and President Trump have been using social media to nurture the fascination for their political figures.

Doors open – 11:45am
Talk begins – 12:15pm
Event concludes – 1:15pm

December 12 at 3 pm in the WES room. Join us for a “A Conversation with Senga Nengudi”. Interested in the visual arts, dance, body mechanics and matters of the spirit from an early age these elements still play themselves out in ever changing ways in her art. She has always used a variety of natural (sand, dirt, rocks, seed pods) and unconventional (panty hose, found objects, masking tape) materials to fashion her works, utilizing these materials as a jazz musician utilizes notes and sounds to improvise a composition. The thrust of her art is to share common experiences in abstractions that hit the senses and center, often welcoming the viewer to become a participant. In addition to her installations, sculpture, and performances, Nengudi also creates paintings, and photography and writes poetry under the pseudonyms Harriet Chin, Propecia Lee, and Lily B. Moor.
