The next meeting of the Chicago Film Seminar will take place on Thursday, February 8. Miriam Petty (Northwestern University) and Allison McCracken (DePaul University) will join us to discuss their recent books, Stealing the Show: African American Performers and Audiences in 1930s Hollywood (University of California Press, 2016) and Real Men Don’t Sing: Crooning in American Culture (Duke University Press, 2015), which shared the 2017 SCMS First Book Award. Allyson Nadia Field (University of Chicago) will moderate the discussion.
Please save the date and, if you haven’t read the books already, consider adding them to your winter reading list. More information will follow in the new year.
