"Ecology, Technology and Anime" Open Lecture

13 November 2017
From 13th of November until 29th of December 2017, a series of public lectures will be held at the School of Advanced Studies. We invite everyone to attend! Lectures are conducted in English.

Speaker: Duskin Drum

This open lecture course is devoted to the selected Japanese anime and manga to examine contemporary issues in ecology and technology. In a world of global climate change, genetic engineering, industrial materials, cyborgs, robots, and other sentient non-humans, Japanese anime and manga offer intriguing, creepy, and enjoyable ways to introduce and examine pertinent issues in ecological critique, and science and technology studies. Along with watching selected anime films and shows, we will discuss issues in ecological critique and science and technology studies. The class will explore issues and themes like global warming, extinction, bioethics, anthropomorphism, becoming animal, becoming machine, and other human nonhuman relations – both technological and biological, augmentation and alteration.

Every Monday and Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 8.30 p.m.
