Wednesday 2 December 2020

DEI Online Seminar Series: Visceral Geographies of Industrial Air Pollution in Paintings of Paris during the 1880s

12:00pm to 1:00pm, Zoom Webinar, Dr Daniel Finch-Race

To register for this event, visit the Zoom Webinar Registration Link.

What feelings do fumes from a factory arouse? Unease is a common reaction to an artificial presence in the atmosphere that sustains human existence. Indeed, airborne pollution can act as a shortcut to recognising all sorts of contaminants due to manufacturing and energy production in advanced economies. This kind of ecological reflection stretching from the personal to the global can spur pessimistic withdrawal, an urge to improve the situation, and many responses in between.
