New York-based film theory nerds, take note: The Phi Sigma Tau chapter at Hunter College is presenting a special
screening of the Buster Keaton classic, College (dir. James W. Horne, 1927), to be followed
with a lecture by Temple University aesthetics professor
Noel Carroll on the aesthetics
of comedy. Carroll is the author of, among other titles, The Philosophy of Horror or Paradoxes of the Heart,
and Beyond Aesthetics: Philosophical Essays.
This is the first in a planned bi-annual series of Distinguished Lecture Series hosted by Phi Sigma Tau. The screening begins at 7pm this Thursday in the President's Conference Room at Hunter East Building, Lexington and 68th Street, in Manhattan. It is open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
