Wesleyan Prof Mentioned in N.Y. Times Yesterday

Filed under: films, school — mete23 @ 3:55 pm

I know this is lame, but Jeanine D. Basinger,  the chair for the film studies department at Wesleyan was name dropped in yesterday’s N.Y. Times movie article of Julie and Julia.

Theories abound as to why. Jeanine D. Basinger, chairwoman of the film studies department at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, noted that male directors, producers and studio chiefs have always called most of the shots in Hollywood. “Men are just not as likely to care about that kind of story,” said Ms. Basinger, who is writing a book about the depiction of marriage on screen.

Professor Basinger taught Michael Bay and Joss Whedon, among other remarkable film writers, editors and producters.

Wesleyan professors aren’t mentioned that much in the news yo!
