Dr. Richard Lee, associate professor in the Jandoli School of Communication, was selected to present a paper at an international music and cinema symposium organized by research groups at two French universities.
Lee presented his paper, "How Terribly Normal to be 70," on Zoom on Feb. 5. The conference, "No One Listens to Springsteen Anymore. He’s History: Pop-Rock Music and 2000s Cinema," was co-organized by research groups at Université Sorbonne
Nouvelle and Université Reims Champagne-Ardenne.
Lee’s presentation focused on three films — "Danny Collins," "Crazy Heart" and "Ricki and the Flash" — whose fictional protagonists are older musicians putting their lives and careers into context.
