Conference – Energy Nightmares: from Chernobyl to a Climate Emergency

Michael Marder

Will we change human behaviour if we transform our idea of “energy”? 2021 marks the 35th anniversary of the nuclear disaster of Chernobyl, which took place on 26 April 1986. Considering the event from a philosophical perspective, we will look at the profound connection between different ways of obtaining energy. The catastrophe of our century not only lies in other nuclear disasters, but also in our continued adherence to a destructive structure for the production of energy, which is threatening to bring an end to various forms of life on the planet.

Conference – Cinema and Ecological Reason

Teresa Castro

Faced with the ever more real prospect of an uninhabitable planet, it is urgent to imagine a closer, more inclusive and more generous relationship with nature and the non-human aspects of life. Inspired by a series of eco-feminist proposals, the historian Teresa Castro suggests that images and the cinema can help us to expand the limits of our attention, thus laying the foundations for an ecological reason.
