I’m in Munich at the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München), where I’m participating in a workshop called Moving Environments: Affect, Emotion, and Ecocinema. The workshop has been convened by Center associates Alexa Weik von Mossner and Arielle Helmick, and features some leading figures in the fields of ecocinema studies (a.k.a. cine-ecocriticism) and the study of affect and emotion in film and visual culture. Since I’ve been asked by a few people to blog about it, I thought I might try my hand at live-blogging. Unfortunately a computer mishap yesterday and some online issues this morning have set me back with those goals, but I’ll share what I can, when I can.
