International Cultural Studies Graduate Certificate Program (ICS) presents the Fall 2018 Faculty Speaker Series.

In this talk, Professor Eagle highlights the melodramatic alchemy through which spectacles of nationalist violence have been constituted as both righteous and pleasurable, tracing the central role of American cinema in the production and naturalization of imperialist affect across the twentieth and into the twenty-first centuries.
