ASCA Film and Philosophy PhD seminar 2023-2024

28 September 2023, 7 December 2023, 22 February 2024, 21 March 2024 | University of Amsterdam
Over the last two years we have focused on topics such as contingency, uncertainty, and affiliated ways of dealing with the epistemological, phenomenological, ontological and aesthetic dimensions of contemporary conditions of restlessness and disquietude. This academic year, we take a contrary point of departure and investigate the  aesthetics of clarity in film, art, media culture, and contemporary thought. What are the attraction and powers of clear thoughts, models, forms, structures, relations, and conditions?

Summer School: Ecogames. Games and Play in Sustainability Awareness, Communication and Action

21 – 25 August 2023 | Utrecht University

With the impending climate crisis and its short-term repercussions becoming more ‘tangible’ every year, popular media and especially games – both digital and analogue – are increasingly drawing attention as powerful tools for climate education, communication and action. The summer course builds on and contributes to a growing body of scholarship that explores this phenomenon, situating it within the broader field of environmental humanities and ‘green media’ studies. We investigate how ‘ecogames’ complement existing ecomedia (e.g. film, television, photography, performance or music) and approach the study and societal application of ecogames from a variety of research traditions, including the humanities, social sciences, sustainability studies, economics and creative practice research.
