1. Vernetti, Santiago. Locating the microcinema: Echo Park Film Center, Light Industry, and Other Cinema.

Degree: MA, Art and Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere, 2013, University of Southern California

The term microcinema has emerged over the last decade in scholarship of film and film culture, journalism, and organization mission statements. This thesis explores three microcinemas as case studies: Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles, CA; Other Cinema in San Francisco, CA; and Light Industry in Brooklyn, NY in order to approach an understanding of microcinemas as small-scale revisionist responses to the norms of movie theaters and screenings in film and art worlds. The microcinema is a contextually responsive critical space that must also be understood as a product of its locality. ❧ I consider the microcinema in relation to historical precedents, specifically the early years of Canyon Cinema. Secondly, each of the microcinemas is described in terms of their physical characteristics, their organizational models, and their programming. Lastly, I turn to Hollis Frampton’s notion of Infinite Cinema as a unique source with which to expand ideas and characterizations of the microcinema. This study argues for the microcinema as a small-scale institution that functions as a necessary site for the activation and preservation of marginalized forms of cultural production and their related distribution networks. Advisors/Committee Members: Anastas, Rhea (Committee Chair), Higa, Karin (Committee Member), Wedell, Noura (Committee Member), Hudson, Suzanne P. (Committee Member).

2. Elston, Mary Melissa. From Painting to Pixels: Expansionist Topoi in American Visual Culture.

Degree: 2014, Texas A&M University

Digital representations of the mythic West abound, from Rockstar Games? popular open-world Western, Red Dead Redemption, to free iPad and iPhone apps (Oregon Settler, Trade Nations Frontier). These virtual re-enactments use twenty-first century technologies to reinforce broader dominant-cultural narratives celebrating the twinned colonization of indigenous land and bodies, yet their roots lie in far older aesthetic and discursive conventions: those found within nineteenth-century landscape and frontier paintings. This project traces the evolution of frontier imagery from the nineteenth century to the digital age and uses Aristotelian topics theory to evaluate recurring images? discursive impact over time in a Western context. Nineteenth-century landscape artists generated a number of recurring visual topo which persist to this day. Among the most prominent are the ?empty? prairie or rugged Western landscape, waiting to be filled with white settlements, and the vanishing or dying "Indian," whose demise paves the way for the land?s new inhabitants. My project articulates the rhetorical dimensions of these images and demonstrates the ongoing role of both visual and digital culture in shaping U.S. public opinion concerning Western land use and Native American tribal sovereignty. It also analyzes the additional rhetorical power and complexity such images hold when they make the leap from static media (paintings, illustrations, sculptures) to more interactive formats. Because participatory media such as video games allow for multisensory engagement ? tapping users? aural and kinesthetic faculties alongside visual faculties ? their multiple sensory appeals enhance rhetoricity at the same time they blur the lines dividing rhetor and audience in traditional Western understandings of rhetoric.

3. Sevieri, Dominic M. The Persistence of Vengeance from Early Modern England to Postmodern New York.

Degree: MA, English, 2012, University of New Orleans

As a passing glance at the popular texts of any given period reveals, the subject of vengeance is nearly inescapable; on billboards, websites, and year end lists, revenge represents a curious constant even amid disparate media. This study explores the cultural commonalities that align revenge texts of the English Renaissance and exploitation films of late 20th century America. As in-depth inquiry reveals, numerous ideas and narrative tropes popularized during the Early Modern period are pushed to their logical extremes in these films. The central factor that aligns London during the Renaissance and New York at the cusp of the 1990s relates to traumatic, far-reaching changes in the urban landscape and its uses. There is an observable preoccupation, on the part of playwrights and filmmakers, with the subject of vengeance as tied to notions of locality, space, and rightful ownership. Advisors/Committee Members: Loomis, Catherine, Piano, Doreen, Easterlin, Nancy.
