The new book club series continues after two successful book clubs hosted by Kylemore Abbey with a fascinating topic hosted by the London Global Gateway. Before Alfred Hitchcock moved to Hollywood in 1939, he wrote, designed or directed over two dozen films in London, the city that was his birthplace and that remained a constant source of inspiration. The book club with Professor Susan Ohmer, Professor of Film and Television and William T. and Helen Kuhn Carey Associate Professor of Modern Communication, focuses on two of his most highly regarded films that take place in London: The Lodger (1927) and Sabotage (1936).
This 4-part series celebrates both the work of a brilliant director and the sights and sounds of a city he loved. The program includes book excerpts, films, explainer videos, mini-essays and weekly interactive Zoom sessions.
Live Zoom sessions are scheduled on Wednesday September 9, 16, 23, and 30 at 1:00 PM EDT/6PM in the UK. Participants will also be able to connect through a LinkedIn discussion board.
This is a free course open to all alumni, students, faculty/staff, family and friends of Notre Dame.
