i am trying to post this notice of my forthcoming book publication, Space and Time in African Cinema and Cine-scapes.
the study represents a first attempt to bring the physics of space and time to bear on cinema studies, and especially african cinema.
the flyer offers a 20% discount on pre-publication orders--it is with routledge.
it is my hope that by emphasizing the physics of relativity, quantum mechanics, and cosmology, we will be able to rethink how to approach the questions of time/temporalities and space/framing, in ways that have been fundamental to modern physics. (some of the scientists whose work is cited include rovelli, barad, muller, hawking, carroll, greene, susskind, smolin--and a fair amount from deleuze).
i also hope to demonstrate the unique qualities of african cinema, often at the margins of mainstream global cinemas, that admit of such new analyses
