     Laura Mulvey is the author of the groundbreaking 1975 manifesto of feminist film criticism, Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema. She returns to Wellesley in March to offer reflections on feminist film theory now and in relation to one of her specialties, cinema of the 1920s. Mulvey is Professor, Department of History of Art and Screen Media, Birkbeck, University of London and is among the most sought-after and widely quoted film theorists working today; her work has influenced scholars in many fields beyond film studies. Her recent work (Death 24x a Second: Stillness and the Moving Image, 2006, and Fetishism and Curiosity, forthcoming) continues to break new theoretical ground, offering new analyses not only of film but also of photography.
