Canceled: The Susan Glaspell Writers & Critics Series present Filmmaker and Scholar Professor Christohpher Harris

Due to the Drake University COVID-19 Response, all on-campus events will be canceled starting Saturday, March 14, through Sunday, May 17. Organizers of these events can be contacted directly for more information, as some events are moving online.

Professor Harris will discuss his work as a filmmaker and scholar whose films and video installations read African American historiography through the poetics and aesthetics of experimental cinema.  His work employs manually and photo-chemically altered appropriated moving images, staged re-enactments of archival artifacts and interrogations of documentary conventions. His current project is a series of optically-printed 16mm experimental films in conversation with canonical works of African-American literature.

Thursday, March 26 at 5:30pm to 6:30pm
