Avatar and the Colonization of Bodies
Dr. Claire Molloy
Liverpool Hope University
Date: Wednesday 9 May 2012
Place: Eden 109, Liverpool Hope University
In pursuing its eco-agenda the blockbuster science-fantasy film Avatar draws on various aspects of environmentalism for its ideological coherence. At the same time, the film’s envisioning of an idealised harmonious nature relies on intersecting constructions of difference. Framed by a critique of Avatar as a colonial narrative, this free and open seminar will address the film's engagement with representations of disability from an eco-feminist perspective.
