The Eras of Godard: A Phenomenological Approach
Thursday, May 25 • 3:00 pm – 3:20 pm (CEST)

Glen W. Norton teaches in the Department of English and Film Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University, Ontario, Canada.

His research focuses on phenomenological approaches toward the study of cinema, with a special interest in ties between the expression of lived temporality and existential ethics. His most recent publications include an analysis of temporality in the road movies of Benoît Jacquot, as well as a discussion of modernist character embodiment in the early work of Jean-Luc Godard.

He is the digital curator of Cinema=Godard=Cinema, an online, open access website dedicated to the scholarly study of Godard’s work. His forthcoming book, Lived Moments: Phenomenology, Neorealism, and the New Wave, charts evolving modernist conceptions of the intertwining of cinema and lived experience within and between these movements.
