Professor Randall Halle, University of Pittsburgh, “Creative Europe: Visual Culture From National to European Style”

Monday, November 17, 2014, 4:00pm, Pugh Hall 120


Europeanization is a term of social scientific analysis, largely ignored by the humanities; moreover Europeanization has been largely a term associated with economic and political transformations within the expanding EU and not an explicit question of culture. However with the start of 2014 the new Creative Europe program has come into effect and it has already had a deep impact on cultural production across the EU and well beyond its borders. The program seeks to harmonize and synergize the cultural and creative sectors across Europe, recognizing them as playing a “big role in the European economy.”  This cultural policy produces what we can identify as culture industry 2.0. Thus attention to the program calls upon both social scientists and humanists to develop new paradigms of understanding European culture.

Randall Halle is the Klaus W. Jonas Professor of German Film and Cultural Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. He has published The Europeanization of Cinema: Interzones and Imaginative Communities (2014),  German Film after Germany: Toward a Transnational Aesthetic (2008), Queer Social Philosophy: Critical Readings from Kant to Adorno (2004). He has co-edited After the Avant-garde: New Directions in Experimental Film (2008), Light Motives: German Popular Film in Perspective (2003), and Marginality and Alterity in Contemporary European Cinema, two special two volumes of Camera Obscura (2001). The lecture is funded by the Jean Monnet Chair and the European Union funded Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at the University of Florida and the Waldo W. Neikirk Term Professorship.
