ASLE Conference All This Week in Moscow, ID

2015 June 23
by Shared by Steve Rust

This week, the ASLE conference is taking place in sunny Moscow, Idaho.  Coming on the heals of the Environmental Communication conference earlier this month in Boulder, CO, the ASLE conference provides more signs of the growing prominence of ecomedia studies across the academic spectrum.

An ecomedia interest group meeting will be held Thursday, June 5 and there are enough full panels devoted to film and media this year that the conference has created a ‘Visual Arts and Film’ stream to help conference goers note relevant panels.

Additionally, there are a number of film screenings and art installations to take note of:

On Thursday evening from 7:30-10pm be sure to check out “Ecologies of Inconvenience,” a video installation by Cary Peppermint and Leila Nadir of EcoArtTech.

Also on Thursday evening from 7:30-10pm a running loop of 7 short environmental films will play at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre in downtown Moscow, curated by Salma Monani and Stephen Rust.

On Friday at 1:30 the Kenworthy will screen Even Though the Whole World is Burning, a feature-length documentary of poet William S. Merwin followed by a discussion led by Aaron Moe.

Finally, on Friday at 4:00 the Kenworthy will screen Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story a feature-length narrative film followed by discussion led by Greta Gaard.
