Venue: Drama Studio, Arts 2 Building, QMUL
This event celebrates the work of our distinguished colleague, the film historian Geoffrey Nowell Smith, the 2016 recipient of the prestigious Serena Medal. The Serena Medal is awarded annually by the British Academy for eminent services towards the furtherance of the study of Italian history, philosophy or music, literature, art or economics. Geoffrey will be in conversation with Professor Sue Harris, Professor of Film Studies at Queen Mary, and their discussion will be illustrated with extracts from some of Geoffrey’s favourite films. The discussion will be followed by a reception, to which all attendees are invited.
