About 30 students from three classes recently went on a joint field trip to the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, N.Y.

Students in Assistant Professor of Art Robert Knight’s Art 302: Advanced Photo class visited with Process Historian Mark Osterman and Historic Process Specialist Nick Brandreth in the museum’s photo workshop program.

Another group of students – from Margaret Bundy Scott Professor of French Martine Guyot-Bender’s French 160: French Cinema and the Lens of Work and Associate Professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures Kyoko Omori’s Japanese 160: Japanese Film, Animation and Literature classes – visited the museum’s historical film archive.

The two groups got together for dinner where they watched a selection of early French and American films, both silent and with sound. The American film, O Mimi San (1914), depicts a story of a Japanese prince in the way it was fantasized by American audience at the time. It was one of the first Hollywood movies to use Japanese and Japanese American actors.
