Brad Epps is currently a Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures and Studies of Women, Gender and Sexuality at Harvard University. His stay at Durham is a significant step for him because he will be moving more permanently to the UK in the summer, after 20 years at Harvard, to be Head of Spanish and Portuguese Studies at Cambridge. While at Durham, Professor Epps will be working on a theoretically informed cultural history of the city of Barcelona in film and other time-based media in accordance with the annual IAS subtheme of 'scaling time'. He is particularly interested in how the passing, memorialisation, and monumentalisation of time in the Catalan capital are represented in film and how cinematic technique, filmic form, and industrial materiality have themselves changed over time.
