主题： Getting It Wrong: Hitchcock’s Vertigo
主讲人： Professor Laurence Simmons
地点：上海外国语大学松江校区 4教楼306 教室
Professor Laurence Simmons’ research and publication interests embrace three different areas: contemporary art and film; Italian Renaissance culture and Italian film; and critical theory (including film, media and television theory) and visual culture. He has long been drawn to contemporary (European) ideas and forms of critical theory, in particular the work of Jacques Derrida, Jacques Lacan, Gilles Deleuze and Giorgio Agamben. He has consciously tried to find ways of introducing forms of theory into local academic and cultural debate and he believes that there has been a consistent intellectual progression in his work to date from his early writings on art to the engagement with post-structuralist theory in the 1980s and 1990s which has made possible his work in cultural and visual studies and more recently his interest in the role of public intellectuals in contemporary society.
