About this talk

Dr. Rosanne Welch (RTVF) speaks on the craft of history of film adaptations from the controversy of the silent film Birth of a Nation (protested by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in 1915) to Breakfast at Tiffany’s (to which author Truman Capote famously said, “The only thing left from the book is the title”) to The Godfather . Naturally, the behemoth in adaptation – Harry Potter (which depended on the relationship created by adapter Steve Kloves and author J.K. Rowling) will be discussed, as will the subject of this month’s celebration: Dune.

Date: Wednesday, October 14, 2015
Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm

Gentlemen Doctors from How Doctor Who Redefined Masculinity [Video Clip]

 

Transcript:

These are the archetypes of masculinity in general literature and stories, right. So, Adventurer, Gentleman, Statesman, Warrior, Lone Wolf and Family Man. which seems to, sort of, argue with each other right there, but we’ll see how they play out on all of our different men. I would say that all of them have these qualities. there you go. End of lecture. But, I think the first three –and as I was picking through all of The Doctors and what I had to say about them — the first three are reflected more largely in our original 8 Doctors. So, we have this set right here as we know. So, they show us Adventurers — because they escape with the TARDIS and off into the world and time and space. They’re all Gentlemen and they’re all pretty much Statesmen. As are these four. Peter Davison being my favorite, but they all — and also we very much get the Clown with Sylvester McCoy down at the bottom.

Dr. Rosanne Welch (http://rosannewelch.com) speaks on “Feminism in the Whoniverse” of Doctor Who, the BBC television program now in its 50th year. She reviews each of the Doctor’s female companions and speaks on how they are represented in the program and how they represented the women of their respective periods.

Transcript:

To me, Martha is the most feminist character that has ever travelled with The Doctor. I believe based on her job choice. Based on the way she handled The Doctor. She did, in fact, save his life at a certain point, which is akin to the earlier episodes. She made the choice to not to have her heart broken. Not to sit around and wait and beg and plead for something she couldn’t have and then she built a life without the firt person she wanted. For me, those are very, very powerful statements being made by that character. And I think it’s important to pay attention to that. Now, that’s my personal choice. Obviously people have many other choices.

Feminism in the Whoniverse was presented at the Cal Poly Pomona University Library where Dr. Welch teaches in the IGE (Interdisciplinary General Education) program.

Transcript:

So, in this scale they pick Donna. I have a problem with that. Donna ends her life with The Doctor married to a guy. That is the ultimate goal in her life and she’s not going to have a job. How’s she going to make money for the rest of her life. (Crowd: She’s married) Well, she’s married, sure, she’s married a guy, but she does it get something handed to her. Who remembers how we get rid of Donna? Lottery ticket. The Doctor hands her a lottery ticket, because traveling in space and time he goes to the future, figures out what lottery ticket’s going to win, then buys it in the past and hands it to her. So, there’s not — she talked to women more in her scenes but I’m getting the whole feminist vibe of Donna. Frankly, if it’s up to me…Martha.
