Professor Bowers, University of Pennsylvania has a long-standing interest in the limitations of representational language. Recently, this interest led her to new research on pantomime as an alternative communication system, a system based in metonym rather than metaphor. This research, in turn, led to her a close study of Charlie Chaplin’s pantomime, the ancient art’s greatest 20th-century manifestation. Bowers now teaches an advanced cinema studies course on Chaplin’s silent films and their place in pantomimic tradition.
