Mapping Cinematic Time: Affect, Seizure, Boredom
Time: 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Palamountain Hall Davis Auditorium: Alberto ZambenedettiAssistant Professor of Italian Cinema and Cinema Studies – University of Toronto Mapping Cinematic Time: Affect, Seizure, Boredom According to sociologist Georg Simmel, modern life requires that individuals conceive of their lives as organized according to an “impersonal time schedule” (1903) that has replaced the circadian rhythms and chronobiological processes of agriculture-based societies. This epochal shift is accompanied by the rise of cinema, arguably the time-based medium that is most synonymous with modernity. In the late twentieth century this shift was intensified by the advent of personal computing; as a result, screens (from the cinema to the iPad) have become the privileged site for social interactions. Paul Virilio, French cultural theorist, notes, “The screen has become the city square,” (1997) replacing live assemblies of personal, mercantile, juridical, and even religious nature. Through an examination of a variety of visual media, including painting, still photography, cinema, and internet art, this lecture explores what Mary Ann Doane described as the “emergence of cinematic time” (2002) and how it has affected our perception of the human condition. Brief Bio:Dr. Zambenedetti earned a PhD in Italian Studies from New York University, after completing a Masters’ degree in Cinema Studies at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and a Laurea in Foreign Languages and Literatures at Ca’ Foscari University in Venice, Italy. He has published extensively on mobility in Italian cinema, on transnational cinemas and urban studies. He has edited two books in the series World Film Locations (Intellect Publishers) specifically World Film Locations: Florence and World Film Locations: Cleveland; he has co-edited a book on Italian director Federico Fellini (Florence: Franco Cesati Editore, 2016). His recent research focuses on concepts of temporalities in cinematic and artistic media. With the support of the World Languages and Literatures Department, the Media Studies Program and the Center for Leadership, Teaching, and Learning and the “Time Project”.

Demands and Dialogue: Re-engaging African Objects and Communities at the Royal Ontario Museum
Time: 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM
Palamountain Hall Davis Auditorium: Demands and Dialogue: Re-engaging African Objects and Communities at the Royal Ontario MuseumSpeaker: Dr. Silvia Forni Dr. Silvia Forni is Curator of Anthropology in the ROM's Department of World Cultures. She is the curator of the African collection, and responsible for the permanent and rotating display of African artworks in the Shreyas and Mina Ajmera Gallery of Africa, the Americas and the Asia Pacific. She is also Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Toronto, where she teachers Anthropology of Material Culture, Ethnography of Africa and Anthropology of Art. Since joining the ROM in 2008, she curated the partial gallery reinstallation and has worked on a number of exhibition projects focusing on African and African Canadian themes. Her research focuses on the significance of art objects and material culture in both local contexts and as part pf exchange networks. She is interested in the tensions, dynamics, and feedback that inspire the contemporary creators in Africa and the way art challenges the way Africa has been constructed in the Western imagination. In Cameroon, Dr. Forni has been researching the production and marketing of "traditional" African artworks produced since the second half of the 20th century and focusing on the important role of African dealers in the international trade of African art and their contributions to the shaping of collections and knowledge. In Ghana, she has been investigating the production, meaning, performance and circulation of the insignia of the Asafo companies of the Fante people. This lecture will focus on the contentious history surrounding the exhibition, "Into the Heart of Africa", a moment that polarized Canadian communities when it debuted in 1989. Just recently, the museum formally apologized for the anti-African racisim the exhibition brought to its community. Dr. Forni will discuss the role of museum curators in negotiating between art objects, difficult histories and modern publics.

Commas: From Confusion to Confidence
Time: 3:15 PM to 4:15 PM
Harder Hall 201: Commas, like their fellow punctuation marks, make vital contributions to a sentence's meaning. But commas often confuse us; they can serve so many functions and turn up in so many different places. How can we tell which function applies in a given sense? Where, oh where, might a comma go? Sometimes a comma is required, and sometimes it may be optional. How do we distinguish the required from the optional?This workshop aims to make commas our allies in the search for precision and meaning.
