Professor Peter Mack FBA (1955-2023)

We are shocked and deeply saddened to learn that Peter Mack died as the result of a car accident on Thursday 5th October.

Peter Mack was a rigorous scholar and an excellent administrator. He directed the Warburg Institute from 2010 to 2014 and was both Head of the Department of English & Comparative Literary Studies and Chair of the Faculty of Arts, besides being actively involved in the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance. A Fellow of the British Academy and a leading authority on the English and European Renaissance, combining Shakespeare and Montaigne, his work and kindness touched everyone who met him, from students to colleagues, across various disciplines. His many books included Elizabethan Rhetoric: Theory and Practice (2002); Reading and Rhetoric in Montaigne and Shakespeare (2010); A History of Renaissance Rhetoric 1380-1620 (2011); and Rhetoric's Questions, Reading and Interpretation (2017) 

Further details about the funeral and memorial event will be announced as soon as we have them. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Film and TV's Tiago de Luca kicks off ‘Latin American Cinema: Between Theory and Practice' at the BFI Southbank

 ‘Latin American Cinema: Between Theory and Practice’ comprises three sessions taking place at the BFI Southbank in June and July.
This is the third series of workshops devoted to re-envisioning film theory in a global context. For session 1, on 19 June, ‘Depth of Field, Class Conflict and the Latin American Cinema of Domestic Service’, Tiago de Luca (University of Warwick) will focus on depth-of-field theories in ‘cinema of domestic work’. This session will consider whether André Bazin’s foundational writings on depth of field can be applied to recent Latin American films about the relationship between employers and live-in domestic workers.
Tickets can be booked here.
