The goal of the International Symposium “Cinema in the Anthropocene”, coordinated by Katarzyna Paszkiewicz and Andrea Ruthven (ADHUC-Universitat de les Illes Balears), is to reflect on the ways in which contemporary cinema allows us to resituate ourselves in what is commonly known as the Anthropocene, along with the filmic forms (narratives, modes, and genres) that respond to this climatic, social, and cultural reality. These questions will be analysed from a variety of disciplines and theoretical perspectives, from film studies, critical posthumanism, and Black media studies, to gender and sexuality studies, animal studies, as well as crip and queer theory and affect studies, among others. This activity forms part of the research project “Cinema and Environment: Affective Ecologies in the Anthropocene” (PID2019-110068GA-I00).


This activity forms part of the research project “Cinema and Environment: Affective Ecologies in the Anthropocene” (PID2019-110068GA-I00). The researchers from the project, Verena Andermatt Conley (Harvard University), Libe García Zarranz (NTNU) and Alexa Weik von Mossner (University of Klagenfurt), will be presenting their work, along with the invited participants Julia Leyda and Celina Stifjell (NTNU), Marta Segarra (ADHUC-CNRS, LEGS), Rubén Jarazo Álvarez and Rosa Moreno (UIB), Ignacio Bergillos (CESAG), Kornelia Boczkowska (Adam Mickiewicz University), and Gerard Ortín Castellví (Goldsmiths, University of London). The symposium serves as a forum for sharing the results of the research project with the general public as well as, and specifically, with the research community, while also seeking to inspire early career scholars who are just beginning their research.
