The Virtual Education Project

One of the most effective ways of learning is to immerse ourselves in the cultures we study; yet, we often encounter problems when these cultures are separated from us by constraints such as geography or time. When studying various people, places, events, and works, students and teachers rarely have the resources to visit each (if any) historical landmarks pertaining to their subject matter, restricting both research and teaching to textbooks and/or an amalgam of materials from various resources. The Virtual Education Project (VEP) is a large-scale pedagogical undertaking directed at providing both students and teachers with visual introductions to historical and contemporary landmarks (worldwide) relevant to the study of the humanities.

This panel for the 2015 NeMLA in Toronto seeks to explore the impact of The French New Wave along with the key filmmakers and films that defined the movement. The Nouvelle Vague changed the way that people watch, critique, and make movies for generations to come. However, what happens when the New Wave is no longer new? Has its elevation to classic status stripped it of its power to provoke? What is the continued relevance of the French New Wave? We seek to engage with these questions by looking at its criticism, filmmakers, and key New Wave films, and the current status of the Nouvelle Vague. Submit abstracts (in English or French) to jackiec159@hotmail.com
by Sept. 30.
