Four Freedoms Series: Freedom from Fear
Tuesday, January 16 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Freedom from Fear: We are what we watch
Dr. Karen A. Ritzenhoff will discuss the topic of dystopia in film as well as the depiction of terrorism. When human fears are articulated in different film genres, we have to decide for ourselves whether we accept the fears that are communicated to us via popular culture — or not. How do these fears relate to our idea of what it means to be human and how we share our compassion? Dr. Karen A. Ritzenhoff CCSU Communication Department, is also affiliated with the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, as well as cinema studies and the Honors Program. She has presented numerous programs on women and gender in film at the Avon Library.
