Charles Sugnet, Faculty Fellow, Fall 2008

Charles Sugnet (English, College of Liberal Arts): “Locomotion and Time in West African Cinema”

Sugnet drafted three chapters of his book and rethought the theoretical framework of his project, aided by the extensive reading he did following recommendations of other fellows. This helped him significantly improve what he considered the weakest aspect of his project before his fellowship began. He has developed and presented two papers based on this work: “Music, Meaning, and Emotion in West African Cinema,” and “Abderrahmane Sissako’s Heremakono: The Sahara as a Space of Mobility and Communication, at the ‘Saharan Crossroads.'”
