Cinemas of the City: remediating spaces in the New Havana

In her talk about the visual culture of the city of Havana, Lord, will discuss how her paper is a map of archival fragments that connect various media used by Afro-descendant Cubans to show their appearance in the visual culture of the city. Lord asks what kind of archive of the city is possible given the fragmentary nature of how film and music was produced from 1960’s films to 2000’s graffiti and music videos.

Presented by the Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences
