Patricia MacCormack (Anglia Ruskin)
7 Jan (Thurs), 21 Jan (Thurs), 4 Feb (Thurs), 18 Feb (Thurs)
Occultism has a key relationship with film: was part of the inception of cinema: spectators, with their dreams and fantasies, entered into Faustian pacts with the enigmatic plane of the screen and its magical intensities. This series of four fortnightly evenings will cover a range of themes in occult and cinema, to entertain, challenge -- and to make you consider the visible/invisible in new ways. Professor MacCormack brings rare film clips along with fresh considerations. Above all, she brings theoretical and philosophical critiques delivered with shocking panache. Challenge yourself, one another and the ideas she brings to the table. Each session concludes with a wine party.
Patricia MacCormack is Professor in Communication and Film at Anglia Ruskin University; she works and has published extensively in Continental philosophy, cinesexuality, post-human ethics, chaos magic, sexuality and occult culture.
£40 for the series of four evenings or £10 per night. Places limited.
