    'Acting Locally, (Not) Thinking Globally'
    Global Studies Seminar features Jonathan Walley presenting “Acting Locally, (Not) Thinking Globally: Avant-garde Cinema as a National and International Art Form”
    Full Description: Global Studies Seminar welcomes Jonathan Walley, associate professor of cinema, presenting “Acting Locally, (Not) Thinking Globally: Avant-garde Cinema as a National and International Art Form.” The avant-garde in cinema, as in the other arts, has long been considered an “international” phenomenon, a “global” community not defined or constrained by national or regional boundaries. While there is truth to this, and political value in the concept, thinking of avant-garde cinema in this way can overlook important national and regional distinctions among avant-garde filmmaking practices. This talk is about the tension between attributing global unity to the cinematic avant-garde and recognizing its local specificities, featuring examples of hard-to-find work from Europe, Japan, and North and South America. Free and open to the public.
    Address: Slayter Hall, Denison University Room, Denison University, 200 Ridge Road, Granville, OH 43023
    Open to Public: Yes
