PhD completion seminar - James Cleverley

You are warmly welcomed to join James Cleverley at his PhD completion seminar:

Memories of the GDR: Multiple Temporalities and Embodied Spectatorship in Filmic Narratives of East Germany

This thesis investigates cultural memories of East Germany through case studies of post-unification German films, analysing the extent to which they challenge or support dominant narratives. The past and the present are found to be co-dependent in the productive memory work of these films, their use of multiple temporalities being central to this project. Applying methodologies from memory studies together with an embodied, phenomenological film theory, this study interrogates the affective and sensorial qualities in the spectator’s film experience.
