Phoenix Reading Series to Feature Film Scholar Gregory Flaxman

Posted on October 18, 2013.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 18, 2013 – High Point University will feature film scholar Gregory Flaxman as part of the Phoenix Reading Series. The event will be held at 7 p.m. on Oct. 24 in the Francis Auditorium of Phillips Hall. The event is free and open to the public; no tickets are required.

Flaxman, who serves as associate professor of English and comparative literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has authored many books, including “Gilles Deleuze and the Fabulation of Philosophy: Powers of the False” and “The Brain Is the Screen: Deleuze and the Philosophy of Cinema.”

“His talk will help our students understand and engage with film differently, specifically from a better developed contextual and analytical pose,” says Dr. Jacob Paul, assistant professor of English.

The event, co-sponsored by HPU’s English and foreign language departments, is part of the Phoenix Reading Series, a new extension of the four-decade-old Phoenix Festival at HPU.

Flaxman earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Michigan, a Master of Arts in English from the University of Minnesota, a Master of Arts in film studies from the University of Iowa and a Ph.D. in comparative literature from the University of Pennsylvania.
