ARTISTS & CRITICS: FILM
Panel discussion with renowned director, film critic and film scholar ; presented by CSPS, the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry & the Center for Creativity and the Arts

Film is a means of creativity, expression, entertainment, persuasion and, at times, manipulation - making it a driving force in the ways that people relate to one another and the world. From silent beginnings to the forefront of technology, film has offered ways to reflect upon the past, comment upon the present, imagine other worlds, and project a broad range of possible futures. Film's rich narrative and aesthetic range and effects have made it one of the most powerful media for interpreting and understanding society, history and the meanings of life.

The second event in the Artists & Critics series will focus on film. Please join us to hear New York Times film critic A.O. Scott and screenwriter and director Todd Field (In the Bedroom, Little Children) discuss their crafts and the way they see themselves in relation to their fellow panelists and various public constituencies. Matthew Bernstein (Chair, Department of Film Studies, Emory University) will moderate the discussion, followed by time for questsions and answers. Click here for flyer and directions!


Cosponsors for the series, as of September 8, include African American Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, Art History, Center for Women at Emory, Comparative Literature, Creativity and the Arts Initiative, Creative Writing, Emory Graduate School, Film Studies, Goizueta School of Business, Graduate Institute of the Liberal Arts,  the Hightower Fund, Journalism, Luminaries in the Arts & Humanities, the Michael C.

Artists & Critics: Music
Panel discussion with renowned music critic and musician

Music occupies an enormous role in discussions of history, social identities, aesthetics and the many ways that people relate to one another. In America specifically, music has often been an integral accompaniment in the progression of history and social change during important movements such as the emergence of jazz in the early 20th century, the Harlem Renaissance in the 20s and 30s, the birth of rock-and-roll in the 50s, the anti-war and civil rights movements of the 60s, the "grunge movement" of the 80s and 90s and the social critique of current history in the aftermath of events such as Hurricane Katrina, for example.

The third and final event in the Artists & Critics series will focus on music. Please join us to hear The New Yorker's music critic Alex Ross and distinguished jazz musician Terence Blanchard discuss their crafts and the way they see themselves in relation to each other and various public constituencies. Emory's Dwight Andrews, composer, musician and associate professor of Music Theory and African American Music, will moderate.
