Dear All,

The following item may be of interest:

*Cinema and/as Ethics Workshop,*
University of New South Wales
Room 327, Robert Webster Building

Dec 9 to Dec 11

The third Cinematic Thinking Network
<http://cinematicthinkingnetwork.org/> workshop is
dedicated to examining the intersection between film and ethics and the
possibility of evoking ethical experience and thinking through cinema. Much
work has been done in recent years on the relationship between film and
philosophy, and many theorists have addressed ethical topics and issues
through the critical analysis of film. But can cinema be regarded as a
medium of ethical thinking in its own right? How can contemporary
philosophical research on film address ethical questions and political
problems? Given the cultural and aesthetic power of cinema to evoke affect,
emotion, and reflection, how can film-philosophy retrieve and reinvent
concepts of belief, ethical experience, critique, and ideology in a
globalised world?
