Notice biographique de Tamara Falicov :

Tamara Leah Falicov is an associate professor of film studies and has worked at the KU since 1998.

She received her doctorate in Communication from UC San Diego, where she wrote a dissertation on state cultural policy in relation to the contemporary film industry in Argentina. She also received a degree in sociology from UC Berkeley. She received a Fulbright student research award to study the film industry in Buenos Aires, Argentina for the 1997-98 academic year.

Professor Falicov's specialty is Latin American Cinema, with particular focus on the film histories of Argentina and Cuba. A newer field of interest is the increased importance of global film festivals and how these platforms for exhibition and potential distribution enable Latin American filmmakers to make inroads into the global market. Her research has appeared in the following journals: Studies in Latin American Popular Culture, Southern Quarterly, Canadian Journal of Communication, Media, Culture, and Society, Framework, and Film and History. She has authored a chapter on Argentine blockbuster movies for the anthology Movie Blockbusters, edited by Julian Stringer (Routledge, 2003).

Professor Falicov's book, The Cinematic Tango: Contemporary Argentine Film (London: Wallflower Press) was published in April 2007. The book has been named an "Outstanding Academic Title" by the premier source of reviews of academic books, electronic media and Internet resources for higher education. It is listed in the film category by Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries.

La conférence est ouverte à tous dans la limite des places disponibles.
