  1. The Reception of 2001: A Space Odyssey with Seth Friedman

Seth Friedman, along with DePauw’s film studies department, is hosting a virtual faculty forum on Friday, Oct. 23 at 4 p.m. EDT. Per DePauw’s campus labs, “This presentation will chart how MGM and other key partners employed strategies to mitigate initial viewer frustrations with 2001’s unconventional textual properties. I argue that these improvised plans gradually helped audiences contend with the film’s ambiguities and challenge Kubrick’s authorial legend as a master tactician.”
