This week, Visiting Fellow Prof Christoph Lindner (Director of the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam) will be on campus giving a graduate seminar and lecture on the topic of visual culture and global cities.
The seminar, entitled ‘Global Cities and Cultures of Fear: Cinema, Architecture and Urbanism’, will be held on Tuesday 9th October in Lock Keepers Cottage at 17:00. The lecture, ‘Slow Art and the Accelerated City: Amsterdam Street Views’ will be the next day, Wednesday 10th October in Arts Two at 18:00.
The lecture won’t discuss film specifically, but should be of interest to anyone thinking about cities and visual cultures. The seminar in particular is set to be an enjoyable and interdisciplinary forum, with MA students, PHD Candidates, and staff welcome from a variety of subject areas. More details are available on the screens and posters in Arts One.
