FILM ANALYSIS REVISITED: Reading Cinema and Society

LECTURE SERIES
MON 4, 11, 18 & 25 MAR 19:30-21:30
Lumière Cinema, Bassin 88
Registration for the whole lecture series 
This lecture series already started. However, it is still possible to register for the individual lectures (see: read more).

In a culture filled with stories and images, we are constantly asked to decode, deconstruct and negotiate meaning. As the most popular visual medium of the 21st century, cinema is especially sensitive to discussions relating to its role as an arbiter of truth and a conduit for ideology. 
This series of five lectures (the first lecture has two parts) provides a toolkit for how to read film as both an art form and a mass medium of communication.

Where do our values come from? What is the origin of right and wrong, good and bad? In this talk, Hanno Sauer sketches the main moral transformations of humanity over the course of its history. Cooperation, punishment, community, identity, inequality, oppression and individualism are the main building blocks of our normative structure. If we want to understand the present, we need to understand where they come from.

LECTURE

We know so much about the devastating realities of gendered oppression in the present, but how did patriarchy first become embedded in societies all over the globe? Investigating the latest developments in science, anthropology and archaeology, author Angela Saini paints the complex history of how elite men managed to accumulate so much power, and explains why there is nothing inevitable about male domination. Far from being natural, patriarchies are instead long, slow grifts.

LEZING
Donderdag 11 april, 20.00
Aula Minderbroedersberg 4-6

Wat mensen slimmer maakt dan andere apen is niet een groter brein, maar een socialer brein: taal, cultuur, kennis en kunst bestaan omdat wij van elkaar en aan elkaar kunnen leren. Wij zijn geëvolueerd als groepsdieren. In deze lezing wordt ingezoomd op een belangrijk maar onderschat gevolg daarvan: onze hypergevoeligheid voor tradities, conventies en omgangsvormen.

Registration

Many people suffer from psychiatric disorders and mental distress. Yet much is still unclear –regarding both how to understand these problems and how best to treat them. Taking an enactive, ecohumanist approach, Sanneke de Haan argues that taking people’s experiences seriously requires us to look at their developmental history and the role of the specific sociocultural practices they take part in, and finally to take account of people’s existential (self)understanding.

Tuesday 23 April, 20:00
Aula, Minderbroedersberg 4-6

The beliefs of a conspiracy theorist, terrorist, anti-institutional extremist or fundamentalist are all paradigm examples of extreme beliefs. However, it is far from clear what extreme beliefs are. What makes them problematic? And who decides? 
In this lecture, Naomi Kloosterboer and Nora Kindermann discuss the challenges of defining extreme beliefs, of understanding and explaining extreme beliefs in research contexts and of engaging with extreme believers in private and public circumstances.
