  • In recent years, there has been an ever intensifying public debate about the huge challenges confronting humanity, most notably the threat of global warming and demands for global justice. One of the preconditions for meeting these challenges, it has been argued, is what one might call global consciousness, that is the ability to conceive of, identify with and care for humanity as a whole. What role might Hollywood play in this?
  • Hollywood films are seen all around the world, and they also draw on resources (people, source material, locations, finance) from many countries. What is more, they often tell stories about events affecting all of humanity. How do such films, then, relate to public debates about global challenges and to the ideal of a global consciousness? Do they approach these debates and this ideal from a narrowly American perspective? What is known about the impact of Hollywood films within and outside the US? Is Hollywood storytelling conducive to the idea of personal, social and political change?
  • This lecture series begins to address these questions with reference to some of Hollywood’s biggest international hits of recent decades, notably James Cameron’s Avatar (2009). While taking the analysis of Hollywood’s global operations and of the themes and reception of particular films as a starting point, the lecture series also goes beyond the disciplinary framework of Film Studies, in particular by raising the issue of global ethics: What are our ethical responsibilities as film scholars and as citizens with regards to the global challenges of today?
