Visual culture lecture series - Prof. Susan McCabe, UCLA

Visual culture lecture series – Featuring Susan McCabe, a professor of English from the University of Southern California at Los Angeles – Thursday, June 21 from 5 to 8 p.m., room S-128. McCabe’s work juxtaposes the work of four American modernist poets with the techniques and themes of early 20th Century European avant-garde films. The historical experience of WWI and its aftermath of broken and shocked bodies shaped a preoccupation with fragmentation in both film and literature. Her study explores the impact of new cinematic modes of representation in the poetry of Gertrude Stein, William Carols Williams, H.D., and Marianne Moore. McCabe’s books include Elizabeth Bishop: Her Poetics of Loss, and Cinematic Modernisms: The Embodied Poetry of H.D., Stein, W.C. Williams and Marianne Moore.
