Posted: Friday, November 3, 2017
Lesley Pleasant, associate professor of German, has had an article published in Animal Narratology, a special issue of the Humanities journal. Her article is titled 'Seeing Beings: “Dog” Looks Back at “God”: Unfixing Canis familiaris in Kornél Mundruczó’s Film Fehér isten/White God (2014)'.
The article discusses how White God models the empathetic gaze between species as a potential way out of the dead end of indifference and the impasse of anthropocentric sympathy toward less hierarchical, co-created urban animal publics.
