Screening Nature: Symposium & Screenings, Sat 18 MAY – Sun 19 MAY 2013
In a symposium and a weekend of film programmes covering more than a hundred years of cinema, Screening Nature explores the ecology, ethics and aesthetics of the relationship between human and nonhuman animals, nature, and the moving image. Curated by film scholars Anat Pick and Silke Panse in association with Queen Mary University of London, the University for the Creative Arts, the Whitechapel Gallery and the Goethe-Institut. Screening Nature is hub for work in ecology, film and other time-based media that is not interested in the spectacular or cuddly, but in slow burning and thoughtful, ethically engaged work on our place in the world.
SYMPOSIUM KEYNOTES: W. J. T. Mitchell (Professor of English and Art History, University of Chicago) and Claire Colebrook (Professor of English, Penn State), with a talk by experimental filmmaker Rose Lowder, and presentations by Jody Berland (Professor of Humanities, York University) and Silke Panse (UCA).
