Professor Joanne BernardiInspired by her experience at the Selznick program, Joanne Bernardi developed a new course offered this semester to River Campus students called "Film As Object," parented by the Department of Modern Languages and Culture and cross listed under the Film and Media Studies Program. "What Joanne Bernardi gained from her experience at the Selznick School was the technical knowledge of how film as an artifact and object work, while most film scholars rarely handle the object of their studies," says Jeff Stoiber, assistant curator at the Selznick School. "Combining her newfound knowledge from Selznick experts with her broad background of film history for her course, she is now a double threat!"
