Europeanization in the Time of Cannibals

February 2, 2018 - 11:30am
4217 Posvar Hall
All scholars are invited to the first meeting of the European Colloquium, envisioned as a space of interdisciplinary conversation in which graduate students and faculty from both Pitt and CMU will come together to discuss current research on European topics. Organized as a monthly brown bag event, the European Colloquium hopes that everyone will bring not only their lunch, but also their questions and comments to what will hopefully become an ongoing conversation.
Our first presenter will be Prof. Randall Halle, Klaus W. Jonas Professor of German Film and Cultural Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. Katja Wezel, Visiting DAAD Assistant Prof. in the History department, will offer a brief set of comments.
"Europeanization in the Time of Cannibals: Interzones and Imaginative Communities" will discuss three recent films: Global Player (Johannes Stöhr 2013), Age of Cannibals [Zeit der Kannibalen] (Johannes Naber 2014), and Toni Erdmann (Maren Ade 2016).
