Visiting Fulbright Graduate Student Julianne Yang delivered a collquium presentation on her dissertation project "Guilt and Privilege in Twenty-First-Century Scandinavian Film and TV" on Friday, 11 March 2016. The talk developed readings of Roy Andersson's films, the Internet series Sweatshop, and the films of Susan Bier, among others. The dissertation uses theories of the emotions, theories of globalization, and cultural and film studies methods to ask how globalization has created ambivalent emotional economies that complicate contmporary political-economic relationships.
