    We would like to invite you to participate in an upcoming seminar sponsored by the Center for the Humanities at the Graduate Center, the Film Studies Working Group: Theory, Practice, and the Moving Image.

    This seminar will provide an interdisciplinary forum for faculty and students working with film and related moving image media. Our mission is to form working groups exploring the intersections of theory and creative practice in film and media, and to create a dialogue between creative practitioners and scholars. These working groups, to be formed by the participants, will serve to workshop creative and research projects, and discuss readings based on shared interests. Our emphasis will be on works-in-progress, and will include a dedicated dissertation writing group. As the seminar develops, work produced by each group will ideally generate larger talks, presentations, exhibitions, conferences, or new seminars. Our objective is to foster ties amongst the faculty and students working on film across, and beyond, the campuses at CUNY. All seminars and events are open to the public.
    Our first organizational meeting will be held next Thursday, September 19th, at 6:30PM in room 8301 at the Graduate Center. Here we can begin to form a core group of participants, and to brainstorm directions for the seminar.

    To join the seminar, and for more information about upcoming events and meetings, please register via the Center for the Humanities website:
