Comparative Literature Department's NOMAD Undergraduate Conference

The Comparative Literature Program is proud to announce the NOMAD Undergraduate Conference cosponsored by the JSMA. This conference culminates a year-long speaker series and mentorship program dedicated to a specific research theme. This year students have examined the worlds of illusion and double-take, hoax and pretense through the theme of TRICK. Undergraduate participants have worked one-on-one with faculty and graduate-student mentors to develop and present their own research. The public is warmly welcome.

Schnitzer Cinema: The Mill and the Cross

Lech Majewski's The Mill and the Cross (2011, 92 min.) makes use of traditional and contemporary film technologies, allowing the audience to live inside The Procession to Calvary, an epic 1564 painting by Flemish master Pieter Bruegel. Rutger Hauer plays Bruegel, Michael York portrays his friend Jonghelinck, and Charlotte Rampling plays Mary.

Schnitzer Cinema, a monthly film cafe series co-presented with the Cinema Pacific film festival during the academic year, features new independent films and filmmaker dialogues, free popcorn and other refreshments.
