  • Kellner Presents on Hollywood Film in the Era of Bush-Cheney

    October 4, 2010

    SU Philosophy Fellow Douglas Kellner, Ph.D., , examines film in the last decade, an era of socio-political turbulence and conflict.  In his presentation, “Hollywood Film in the Era of Bush/Cheney: A Contested Terrain,” he reviews how popular films reflected the socio-political landscape, either reproducing conservative and militaristic positions or criticizing the Bush Administration.  His presentation is scheduled for Friday, October 15, at 4 p.m.

    Kellner is the author of Cinema Wars and the George Kneller Chair in the Philosophy of Education at UCLA.  His talk will also address cultural wars over gender, sexuality, race, and class in contemporary cinema and that updates the first volume by engaging Hollywood cinema in the Obama Era.

    Kellner’s visit is sponsored by the Philosphy Department, one of 33 departments in the College of Arts and Sciences. His lecture is free and open to the public.
