An online seminar exploring spectatorship in relation to the drive and gaze – with Eve Watson
Spectatorship is a vital component in considering case studies and vignettes and also works of art such as film. In this talk, Eve Watson will consider “spectatorship” in light of the gaze and ponder how that functions psychoanalytically and what that adds to the work of evaluating text and image as well as its impact on the spectator.
