Alter’s teaching and research focus on twentieth and twenty-first century cultural and visual studies from a comparative perspective, and she published the first English-language study of director Chris Marker in 2006.  In her talk, Alter investigates Marker’s complex use of sound, paying particular attention to how music operates on multiple registers in order to expand the cinematic frame both temporally and spatially. She is currently completing a new book on the international essay film and has begun research for a new study devoted to sound.
