New Forms for a Philosophy of Film

Creative and political methodologies

This interdisciplinary seminar will discuss research theory and practices that address:

1. What is the form of philosophy that might be adequate to address the material complexity of a filmic or screen based image?

2. In what ways have filmic or screen based images altered the discipline of philosophy?

3. What are the “new” forms of film philosophy being practiced today?
