Professor Laura Mulvey, ‘Remixing Hollywood movies of the 1950s: from textual analysis to digital spectatorship’

"In my 2006 book, Death 24 Times a Second: Stillness and the Moving Image, I suggested that digital technology had transformed film spectatorship: its interactive possibilities seemed to make the previously restricted critical practice of textual analysis available to every film fan. But digital editing takes these possibilities further. While the textual analyst selects a particular film sequence for repeated viewing, discovering meanings that are not visible at 24 frames a second, the remixer detaches a sequence from its place in its original narrative sequence. As my own modes of spectatorship have evolved with new technological possibilities, I have found myself returning to Hollywood films, particularly of the 1950s. I would like to discuss this backwards trajectory and present the remixes that have emerged along the way." - Professor Laura Mulvey

Following Professor Mulvey’s presentation she will be joined in conversation by Professor Rod Stoneman and Dr. Barnaby Taylor.
