Bowhead whales have been known to three groups along the Bering Strait over the past two centuries: Indigenous Yupik and Inupiaq whalers, capitalist commercial whalers, and communist industrial whalers. This talk explores how each of these groups imagined different normative relationships with whales and how these ideas shaped interactions between human hunters and whales, and the whales’ own adaptions.

What kind of careful attention to the meaningful lives of other species does film making engender? What sort of perspectives may it open up and/or foreclose?

Onsdag 8. september arrangeres et digitalt foredrag med Rodney Harrison, professor i kulturarvsstudier ved UCL Institute of Archaeology.
How may we grasp meaning beyond the boundaries of biological species? In this talk philosopher Dominique Lestel, will explore ‘zoo-futurism’ as setting up the basis of an ego-ecology – to incarnate and to feel biodiversity not from the point of view of the first person, but from the point of view of a first person; to feel its richness and importance from a personal point of view.
How might attention to worlds of meaning extend beyond the human, and how may this matter for conservation? In this lecture, Marianne Lien, Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Oslo, explores how worlds, such as specific landscapes, are sustained through reciprocal and ongoing practices and affordances.
In this lecture, Erich Hörl, University of Leuphana, Lüneburg, discusses Bernard Stiegler's reflections on the time of suspension or "being-in-disruption" that define life in the Entropocene, understood as an un-time without world or epoch.
This event is co-organised with The Seminar of Aesthetics.
