Fire and the Future: A Panel Discussion about Jane Eyre, Los Angeles
Monday, May 3, 2021
5:00pm - 6:30pm
In addition to the debut of this film (viewable here), we will host a panel discussion on Monday May 3, 2021 on Zoom. To attend, please register here. The panel brings together the artists and art historians to discuss the film in context, thinking about the fields of art history, queer ecology, transness and futurity using the film as a jumping off point. The panel will take up questions the films asks such as is the incendiary power of the feminine a path to reveal our true selves? Can it light the way to a more equal society where care work is valued, the earth is defended, and relationships are based on mutual aid? How does the story of Jane Eyre help to tie a a thread between trans-femininity and destructive wildfires in Southern California?
