    Auteur Theory: How a Stage Director reads Terry Gilliam’s, Brazil (1985) Prof. Timothy X. Troy

    Combining a careful read of Gilliam’s mise-en-scene, Troy gathers fragments of Gilliam’s biography with his contributions to Monty Python’s Flying Circus to explore how auteur theory helps explain Brazil’s unique visual vocabulary, its playful sensibility, and prescient impression of an Anglo-American dystopia.

  • Meeting with Hillel to disucss "Free Hillel" movement

    Tuesday, January 21, 2014
    Type: Conferences/Meetings/Seminar

    Although I met with Hillel only once to discuss their stand on recent official prohibitions of group interactions with Palestinian spokesmen, I spent a significant amount of time gathering materials, corresponding with students, and preparing for the meeting. This was an issue that I felt was significant for the group to consider, and I was disappointed that they ultimately chose not to take a stand.
