Talks by scholars and graduate students on all aspects of film, television, and screen-based media

18 Aug August

Timothy Laurie

Dr Timothy Laurie discusses masculinity in transnational action cinema. He looks at the numerous high budget action films emerging in the US, China, and India in the past decade that employ both international casting and transnational narratives. He argues these films create new kinds of masculine heroes as well as signalling deep cultural differences. Prof. Meaghan Morris joins Tim after his talk to further discuss masculinity, K-Pop stars, and underrated action films.
