Dr. Susan Courtney speaks at Versailles symposium

On April 19, 2013 Film and Media Studies faculty Dr. Susan Courtney gave a Keynote Address at a symposium held just outside of Paris, and co-sponsored by the Université de Paris-Sorbonne and the Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. Entitled, “When the West/ern Meets the South/ern,” the symposium brought together an international group of scholars interested in relationships between filmic representations of the American South and the American West, the topic of Courtney’s current book-in-progress, “Split Screen Nation: Moving Images of the West, the South, and the U.S.A. at Midcentury.”
