Interested in food and film? Join the Comparative Literature NOMAD mentorship program “What Sustains Us” lectures and film viewings, open to all.
Comparative Literature graduate student Sophie Sapp is speaking on Wednesday, 1/26, at 7 p.m. on Frenchness in Delicatessen, and I’ll be speaking in a couple of weeks on the notion of “pureness,” American individualism, and corporate responsibility in the 1971 cult film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the film will follow my lecture):
- February 9, 7 p.m., 115 Lawrence Hall
- “A World of Pure Imagination: Willy Wonka and the American Food Industry”
- Prof. Jennifer Burns Levin, Clark Honors College
