Greetings, weary cyber-traveller. I'm Marty Norden and I'd like to welcome you to my home page. Most of the items you'll find here are related to my work as a Professor of Communication at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I have included the most recent versions of my syllabi, information on books that I've written or edited (such as The Cinema of Isolation and The Changing Face of Evil in Film and Television), my curriculum vitae, a biographic statement, and my theater resume. I've also provided connections to UMass Amherst's Interdepartmental Film Studies Program, Bachelor's Degree with Individual Concentration Program, DEFA Film Library, and Interdisciplinary Studies Institute. In addition, you'll find links to the Amherst Cinema Arts Center, Amherst Media, the Media Education Foundation, the Northampton International Film Festival, and many other professional and scholarly websites in my "Links-o-Rama" section below, divided into four admittedly overlapping categories. Finally, I invite you to learn about the Northeast Popular Culture Association (NEPCA) and its 2017 conference, a scholarly event for which I served as program chair. Enjoy! Again, welcome.
