Centered on the heyday of practical special effects in 1980’s horror and science fiction, this 3 week online seminar will examine the history of bodily transformation from the earliest days of cinema through contemporary films and visual arts. Through comparative viewings, short readings, and weekly discussions we will examine the concepts of the cinematic body;  representation of disease, bodily dissolution, and reparation; and the viewer relationship to on-screen physicality.s Discussion sessions will take place once a week. The third and final session will contain a special guest presentation by Nelson Lowry who has worked as head production designer for Danny Boyle, Tim Burton, Wes Anderson, as well as recent Portland based Laika films.
