2/26/2021; 76 minutes

In this roundtable discussion, professors Stephen Groening, Maggie Hennefeld, Brian Jacobson, and Jocelyn Szcepaniak-Gillece reflect on how pandemics past shed new light on how the current COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping the world of cinema. Moderated by Patrice Petro, this conversation addresses questions of risk and exposure in the media industries, the movie theater's role as public space, and how pandemic-induced streaming changes our understanding of cinema. Participants also explore how fears of viral infection reshape the literal and figurative "atmosphere" of moviegoing. Recorded on 02/02/2021. (#36820)
