Film as Method in the Geohumanities

Tue 9 October 2018 - Wed 10 October 2018

Department of Geography

PhD student Mathilda Rosengren and Prof Matthew Gandy are putting on a two day screening and workshop event that will show a diverse range of recent films about nature, landscape, and earth systems followed by a series of discussions and presentations. Documentary filmmaking has become an increasingly significant methodology in anthropology, geography and other disciplines as part of a growing interest but in what has been termed the 'geo-humanities'. Themes to be explored include narrative strategies and structures, the conceptual status of documentary verisimilitude, and the changing role of film in emerging cultures of nature in the Anthropocene.
