Session 6: Genres of Feeling, The Film Musical | The film musical is defined by the occurrence of song and typically dance within the film’s world. In other words, it entertains the possibility of a world in which people may typically sing and dance as a matter of course. This session explores the Hollywood musical form and its efforts to recover the community, spontaneity, and shared popular experience associated with live performance, along with the particular feelings--associations, emotions, and even political sentiments-- the genre summons forth. Faculty members: Jennifer Fay and Claire King

About the presenters:
Jennifer Fay is associate professor of Cinema & Media Arts and English at Vanderbilt University where she also directs the program in Cinema & Media Arts.
Claire King is associate professor of Communication Studies and Cinema & Media Arts at Vanderbilt University.
