The American Society of Geolinguistics Fall 2016 Lecture

Traversing Language, Movement, and Genre: Naturalist Film in Focus

Prof. Robert Singer
Kingsborough Community College

Saturday, December 3rd at 12:30 pm

Often mistaken for realist film, international naturalist cinema has a unique cultural and critical history. As it evolved from the nineteenth century to the present, naturalist narrative invokes a world of confrontation and demise, survival schemes, indifference, brutality, unrepressed sexuality, and malfunctioning genetics. Naturalist narrative represents the human beast in non-supernatural crisis.

Robert Singer is a Professor of English at Kingsborough, CUNY, and Professor of Liberal Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center, where he also served as the Deputy Executive Director of the program. He received a Ph.D. from New York University in Comparative Literature. His areas of expertise include literary and film interrelations, interdisciplinary research in film history and aesthetics, and comparative studies. He co-edited Zola and Film (2005), The Brooklyn Film (2003), and he also co-authored the text, The History of Brooklyn's Three Major Performing Arts Institutions (2003). He is currently working on a book on naturalism and film interrelations, and he is the co-editor of the ReFocus volumes in Film/American & International Studies, a series of multiple editions, to be published by Edinburgh University Press. He is the vice-president of AIZEN, and he has written and directed several independent short films.

Free & Open to the Public.
