Jennifer Horne: “Serial Americans and the ‘Conquest Program'”

February 18, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

| Humanities 1, Room 210 | Free

Jennifer Horne’s work considers the film-program-as-civics-lesson in the context of the American civics movement. Centering on a film series from 1917, rife with conquesting tropes of manifest destiny, empire and nation, it explores the programming context of the late silent era to theorize seriality as a mode of American visual education. She is Assistant Professor of Film and Digital Media at UC Santa Cruz.
