Celebrate National Library Week (Apr. 10-16) - Adrienne McLean Lecture "Dying Swans & Madmen"

Dr. Adrienne L. McLean, professor of film and aesthetic studies at UT Dallas, will begin McDermott Library's National Library Week observance with a presentation based on her recent book. Drawing on a range of film genres from musicals to melodramas, Dr. McLean will explore the ways that commercial films, including the recent hit "Black Swan" (2010), have produced an image of ballet and its artists that is associated with joy, fulfillment, fame, and power, and also with sexual and mental perversity, melancholy, and death. Free and open to the public.
