“The Globe at the Movies Symposium aims to celebrate and reflect upon the rich and multifaceted nature of global film,” said Rakhimova-Sommers, senior lecturer in Russian and global literature in RIT’s English department and event organizer. “The public forum format is an opportunity for students and faculty to ask probing questions about the film directors’ vision pertaining to complex issues faced by the rapidly changing global community.”
The symposium is sponsored by RIT’s College of Liberal Arts’ Dean’s Office, Department of English, Department of Modern Languages and Cultures, and the Conable Endowment for International Studies.
