Kimberly DeFazio, English Department faculty member, will continue the 2010-11 William J. and Yvonne Hyde English Department Colloquium Series with a presentation entitled "The Urban Image: From Wordsworth to Sofia Coppola." The problem of "seeing" the city has been a central concern since the rise of the modern city. Connecting Wordsworth’s romantic image of the city to contemporary visual studies and culture, especially Coppola’s film Lost in Translation, the presentation addresses the ways in which material conditions shape how the city is visualized and the “crisis” of urban sight. The presentation runs from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on Friday, February 25th, in 113 Wimberly Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
