Geosocial Encounters

Symposium and Film Series

Presented by the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities 

Geosocial Encounters connects documentary artists with researchers and scholar-filmmakers in the environmental humanities. What can video art, experimental documentary, and sensory ethnography teach us about the practice of critical urban, spatial, and environmental research? Conversely, how are scholar-filmmakers utilizing audiovisual tools and contributing to these genres of film and video art? For more information, please contact Meg Arenberg.


Free and open to the public. 

The symposium is co-organized by Dr. Rahul Mukherjee, Assistant Professor of Television and New Media Studies, and Dr. Ben Mendelsohn, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities.

Support from Penn’s Department of English, Cinema and Media Studies Program, Center for Experimental Ethnography, South Asia Center, and Wolf Humanities Center
