On Wednesday, October 21 at noon in Barnard Observatory, Ashley Smith will screen clips from Emma Lytle’s 1940 amateur film “Raisin’ Cotton” as well as some selections from her home movies from Perthshire Plantation that are held at the University of Mississippi Archives and Special Collections. She will also discuss the ways that the meaning of the films in Lytle Collection have changed as they have been re-used in contemporary documentary productions.
Smith is a Ph.D. student in Media Studies, Section for Cinema Studies at Stockholm University.
Brown Bag Lectures take place on select Wednesdays during the fall and spring semesters in the Tupelo Room in the west wing of Barnard Observatory. Brown Bags last one hour and are free and open to the public.
