Kristin Thompson is one of the leading film historians in the United States. To honor Thompson’s 60th birthday, the Department of Communication Arts is hosting a symposium, and on this occasion several distinguished scholars (Charlie Keil, Yuri Tsivian, Janet Staiger and Henry Jenkins) will present research relevant to her areas of interest. Thompson will also deliver a lecture at 4 p.m. on how she spends her winter vacations (The Amarna Statuary Project and Techniques of Visual Analysis).
