‘Toxic’! Toxicity In-Between the Humanities and Natural Sciences // 18 Nov. 2022 (09.00-17.00 CET)


Toxicity and intoxication surround us: If anything, the resurgence of the terms in the late 2010s reminds us of this statement’s basic truth. Toxic masculinity, for example, has become a rallying cry against problematic gender norms, while Britney Spears’ 2003 mega-hit ‘Toxic’ has become a queer anthem conjuring the ‘poison paradise’. The future of our planet is decided at the dead banks of toxic rivers, with people living on toxic soil and drowning in an increasing mass of toxic waste. In the Western world, lifestyle-gurus promise ‘mental detox’ while an opioid crisis ravages the United States.

Animation and Comics: In-between Panel and Frame 

Editors: Editors: Sahra Kunz (UCP-EA/CITAR); Ekaterina Cordas (UCP-CECC); Ricardo Megre (UCP-EA/CITAR).

This call aims to pioneer a cross-disciplinary discussion platform that would initiate a fruitful dialogue between the fields of Animation and Comics. Responding to a growing artistic and academic interest in these two media and to the new conceptual, practical and theoretical challenges they pose, we feel the need to provide a space for academics and artists to share ideas about these subjects.

Cinema’s Natures: Comparative Approaches to Ecocinema

Film scholars are today well aware of cinema’s multiple connections to the so-called “natural” world. From the very beginning, the medium’s technical affordances allowed it to draw attention to the hitherto unseen aspects of our environments, showing us in close-up and time lapse the minutiae of animal and plant life – what Siegfried Kracauer famously called the “reality of another dimension” (1997). More fundamentally, cinema’s longstanding dependence on a congeries of natural resources – silver, petroleum, gelatine – and the effects on screen of its inescapable “hydrocarbon imagination” (Bozak 2011), situate it both with and against the world it depicts.
