Memories of Overdevelopment
Dir. Miguel Coyula will present his film at Cosford Cinema on Sunday, Oct 13th and Thursday October 17th.

Sunday, October 13, 2013
7:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Cosford Cinema
 
We have invited Cuban director, Miguel Coyula, to present his film at Cosford Cinema on Sunday, Oct 13th and Thursday October 17th. There will be a discussion with the director Sunday evening, and Dr. Lillian Manzor will lead a discussion on the original film it was based on. Coyula's piece offers a fascinating perspective that re-imagines the classic film and novel, Memories of Underdevelopment by Edmundo Desnoes. This movie can only be seen at festivals or in special screenings, thus, it is a unique opportunity to see the film and converse with one of Cuba's most vanguard filmmakers whose unique use of montage and anime makes it a visually spectacular experience. http://www.cosfordcinema.com/

FEBRUARY 2014

Language Ideologies in Late Modernity (with examples from francophone Canada)
Guest Lecture: Dr. Monica Heller

Thursday, February 6, 2014
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Merrick 210-01 (MLL Conference Room)
 
This talk will address some of the ways that the conditions of late modernity (particularly globalized capitalism and state neoliberalism) destabilize our long-held ideas about the relationship between language, culture, identity, nation and state, and indeed about language itself. In particular, it will discuss post-national ironizations of modern discursive assemblages, and the commodification of language and culture in ways which both draw on modern ideas about language as index of national authenticity and neoliberal ideas about flexible skilled workers. The talk draws on several decades of ethnographic fieldwork in francophone Canada. Monica Heller is a Professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and the Department of Anthropology, University of Toronto. She is currently also President of the American Anthropological Association (as which she tweets as @anthroprez, in case you're interested). Her most recent publications include Paths to Postnationalism: A Critical Ethnography of Language and Identity (2011, Oxford University Press) and Language in Late Capitalism: Pride and Profit (co-edited with Alexandre Duchene, 2012, Routledge).
