Professor Kiko Mora of the University of Alicante (Spain) will give a talk titled “On Edison’s Carmencita: Spanish Dancing in Early US Cinema.” It concerns a Spanish dancer being recorded by Thomas Edison with his then-new invention, the kinetoscope. In fact, “Carmencita” was the first woman ever filmed by Edison, and therefore, was the first female performer in the history of US film.

This event is sponsored by Department of Spanish, Department of Portuguese, and the Department of Cinema and Digital media
