  Add to Calendar 2020-02-11 18:00 2020-02-11 20:30 Europe/Paris MWP Multidisciplinary Research Workshop One Film- Four lenses - Film: Dr. Strangelove

Max Weber Multidisciplinary Research Workshop "One Film- Four Lenses"

Organisers: Johannes Kniess (MWF SPS) and Johann Justus Vasel (MWF LAW)

A picture is worth a thousand words. How many words then, are moving pictures worth? This semester we launch a new, multidisciplinary, open seminar-type format entitled One Film – Four Lenses . Considering the important social, political, economic, and legal issues captured and promulgated by movies, this seminar series intends to center an open-floor discussion around a movie that deals with a highly relevant topic related to the four disciplines present at the EUI.

 

Our first screening will be Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Love the Bomb (1964). Directed by Stanley Kubrick, this classic black comedy follows a US general who launches a premeptive attack on the Soviet Union, bringing the world to the brink of nuclear war. More than 50 years after its original release, the movie’s themes of deterrence, political paranoia and the madness of war continue to resonate today.

 

Following the screening, we will hear brief comments by Adérito Vicente (SPS), Julie Deschepper (MWF HEC), Johann Justus Vasel (MWF LAW), and Balaraju Battu (MWF SPS) before opening up the floor for discussion.
