Astaire by Numbers uses a quantitative digital humanities approach and production records to reveal how Fred Astaire perfected his film dances on the set, in rehearsal halls, and editing rooms. Todd Decker (Musicology, American Culture Studies, and Film and Media Studies) uses the lens of race, gender, and sexuality to re-assess Astaire as an icon of American popular culture.
Join us for a discussion with Decker. The talk will be followed by a Q&A, and refreshments will be provided.
Free and open to all; registration is requested for in-person attendance, required for virtual attendance.
