You are invited to a discussion with Fulbright Scholar Rachel Schaff, who will provide an overview of how what has been called the ‘New Hollywood Cinema’ of the 1960s broke from the norms established by ‘Classical Hollywood Cinema,’ thus changing dominant notions of film stardom.

In doing so, we will examine concepts like 'classical Hollywood narrative,' 'film style,' and 'stardom.'

In English.

Rachel Schaff is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Cultural Studies of Comparative Literature and Moving Image Studies at the University of Minnesota. She earned a B.F.A in Film and Television Production from New York University, and a M.A. in Film Studies from Columbia University. She is currently a 2015-16 U.S. Fulbright Student Research Fellow in Prague, where she is conducting research for her dissertation.
