Former NFC Fellow, Carrie Reese, develops popular U of T class "Horror Film"

Appearing in U of T News, former NFC Doctoral Fellow (2018-2019) Carrie Reese, has developed a fascinating new course for the Faculty of Arts & Science's Cinema Studies Institute.

The course examines horror films through a critical thinking lens, exploring key elements such as gender and genre as well as notions of space, the home and ownership. That extends to discussing ways that horror connects to emotion and experience, and how emotions like fear and dread can be visualized.

New Publication from NFC Fellow Rhiannon Vogl

Congratulations to NFC Doctoral Fellow, Rhiannon Vogl, who has recently published an article in the recent Spring 2023 issue of RACAR, the Journal of the Universities Art Association of Canada. 

Her article is titled 'Wave/Lengths in Lucy Lippard’s I See / You Mean'. It explores Lucy Lippard’s only published novel, I See / You Mean. The novel began as a wry conceptual experiment and became a sensual and provocative self-exploration. It is intimately tied to Lippard’s experiences within the contemporary art world, the rising feminist movement, and her desire to explore her relationship to both.  This article explores the development of collage-as-methodology in Lippard’s writing, suggests the “sensuous grid” as a new framework for contextualizing Lippard’s approach to her practice, and  resituates I See / You Mean as a nodal point in Lippard’s career, emphasizing the importance of fiction writing in the critic’s work.
