Lucy Bolton (Queen Mary University), Anna Caterina Dalmasso (University of Milan), and Katie Pleming (University of Edinburgh) on the 23/09/2021.
The organising committee are delighted to invite you to the forthcoming seminar:
“Approaching Portraits of Women – Phenomenology and Feminism in Film” – King’s College London.
The seminar will take place online on the 23rd of September 2021.
The aim of the seminar is to shed light on the nexus between Film-phenomenology (that is, the philosophical framing of films primarily as carnal experiences) and its ethical implications. Intersectional Feminism, then, offers an insightful perspective to approach such a question, since it prompts us to reconsider how the sensible cinematic experience politically affects women’s bodies, black bodies, disabled bodies, LGBTQ+ bodies. Here, the (all female) speakers will dwell on how film-phenomenology can illuminate a discussion both on gender and race.
