Dr. Lalitha Gopalan is an Associate Professor at the University of Texas at Austin, Department of Radio, Television, & Film.

"At stake in this presentation is the very act of writing on ‘expanded cinema.’ Provoked by Gene Youngblood’s canonical offering on the fluid state of media as it moved out of the exclusive domain of celluloid to a range of practices that include video, computer, architecture and so on, Prof. Gopalan will be looking at practices in various locations across India that exhibit a similar movement out of the movie theater. It is one matter to identify the practice of expanded cinema but it’s quite a different matter, perhaps more challenging, to translate those practices into a form that is attentive to the works. How to approach a film, when to leave a video, and how to meander through a gallery space are some of the pathways adopted in this presentation, modes of exploration that return to the act of writing."
