An interdisciplinary seminar presenting research theories and practices that address film in relation to Derrida, postmodernism, and political and cosmological form.
Chaired by Felicity Colman (Manchester School of Art): “This seminar seeks to discuss research theories and practices that address the following questions: What is the form of philosophy that might be adequate to address the material complexity of a filmic or screen-based image? In what ways have filmic or screen-based images altered the discipline of philosophy? What are the “new” forms of film philosophy being practiced today?”
Papers: Joanna Hodge, Jason Wood, Dave Griffiths, Gopalan Mullik, Christine Reeh, Elspeth Mitchell, Anna Bergqvist, Maximilian de Gaynesford, Sheryl Tuttle Ross, Keith Crome, Maren Thom and Helen List.
Also including a screening of Love in the Post (2014), a filmic essay on Derrida directed & produced by Joanna Callaghan; plus Extinction Event [GRB130313A], an installation by Dave Griffiths.
