Following the launch of NoRMMA, outlined in the below post, the Gulbenkian is screening the Hollywood classic The Women (1939, George Cukor). This film stars numerous Divine Divas, including Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell, who were the subjects of many a Fan Magazine article. The film will be introduced with an illustrated talk by Lies Lanckman.
An exciting new University of Kent Research Group – the Network of Research: Movies, Magazines and Audiences (NoRMMA) – will be launched on the 13th of October, in Jarman Foyer from 6-7pm. All are welcome to view the exhibition of Fan Magazine material and to discuss the aims and interests of the group.
