Jewish involvement in revolutionary movements of the 1960s and 1970s in film

Talk by Stephanie Pridgeon

Pridgeon, a graduate of Emory University, currently teaches at
Bates College in Maine. Her broader research addresses literary
and cinematographic examinations of memory, commemoration,
representation, and identity construction in conjunction with
the study of Jewish–non-Jewish relations in South America.
In Gainesville, during her tenure as a fellow, she expands her
dissertation research on cinematographic representations
of Jewish engagements with South American revolutionary
movements. She examines the dynamics of political participation
and cultural belonging as crucial coordinates of the South
American Jewish experience in the second half of the twentieth
century. Her fellowship supports the completion of her
manuscript Jews on Screen and in Revolt.
