February 18 – Jennifer Horne: “Serial Americans and the ‘Conquest Program'””

Jennifer Horne’s work considers the film-program-as-civics-lesson in the context of the American civics movement.  Centering on a film series from 1917, rife with conquesting tropes of manifest destiny, empire and nation, it explores the programming context of the late silent era to theorize seriality as a mode of American visual education.  Jennifer Horne is Assistant Professor of Film and Digital Media at UC Santa Cruz.
