  • Scripted Labor: A History of American Screen Writing and the Writers Guild

    10/23/12
    4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
    Max Mutchnick Campus Center
    118

    Please join the Institute for Liberal Arts & Interdisciplinary Studies for a Works-in-Progress Circle with Miranda Banks, Assistant Professor in the Visual & Media Arts Department.

    This Works-in-Progress event will focus on some of the findings Miranda has made during her research for her current monograph, Scripted Labor. Her book details the vibrant history of film, television, and digital media writers in the American entertainment industry, examining key flashpoints of crisis for writers and the union that has represented them for over eighty years. Writers' art and craft have dramatically shifted in every generation as methods of production and distribution of media change. The addition of new screen technologies and industrial shifts—sound, television, the rerun, the VHS tape, the DVD, and streaming media—has lead not only to creative transformations and innovation but also to significant reexaminations of writers' labor by writers themselves, by their Guild, and by the studios. The professional and creative transformations brought about by industrial, political, and technological shifts, in turn, challenge traditional assumptions about authorship, insider status, and creativity.

    Employing Writers Guild archives as well as dozens of personal interviews from past and present screenwriting luminaries who speak candidly about their experiences as writers and as Writers Guild members, this work provides a dynamic examination of the historical changes in the professional experiences of writers as media practitioners, as authors, as artists, and as unionized workers.

    The Works-in-Progress Circle offers an informal space for the Emerson College faculty to discuss their research and creative projects with other faculty members and students, and for students to come to better understand the scholarly and artistic pursuits of their professors.

    This event is not open to the public.

  • Bright Lights: Raw Material with Director Hristos Karakepelis

    10/23/12
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Vast steelworks' dreams of dirt-cheap scrap, Greece's environmental obligations and the Western dream of an army of illegal immigrants meet in a string of shanty towns in the shadow of the Acropolis. Which are trodden underfoot? Three Roma from Albania, two Indians, a Turk and a Greek: a mere sample of the endless army of desperados who recycle the metal of an entire nation; heroes of "Raw Material" and raw material themselves. Nightmarishly, from the dustbins of Athens to the toxic junkyards of downtown Athens and from the foundry furnaces to Lebanon's bombed-out Nachr-Al-Baret refugee camp, the metal they collect becomes the foundations of the insane world in which they-and we-live. Raw Material charts the course of this band of hunter-gatherers in today's Europe. It confronts the smell of an annoying but exploitable savagery. It documents toil in the burning... co-sponsored by the Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary studies
