Come audition for Matt Shelley-Reade‘s senior thesis film DRIVE MANNY DRIVE

An uninspired voyeur stuck in suburbia. A driver’s test instructor out to get him. An overzealous father. And a sports car just waiting for him to pass his test.

This short film tells a coming of age story of a young boy facing his own anxiety.

Theory Certificate Presents: Capitalism and Planetary Crisis

theory_0929_moore_emailFrom Professor Matthew Garrett:

The rise of capitalism after 1450 marked a turning point in the history of humanity’s relation with the rest of nature. It was greater than any watershed since the rise of agriculture and the first cities. In relational terms, it was even greater than the rise of the steam engine. This history has assumed new salience in an era of runaway global warming and the Anthropocene narrative, which purports to explain the origins and prime movers behind such deepening planetary instability. In this talk, environmental historian Jason W. Moore explains why and how the early modern origins of capitalism, understood as a world-ecology of power, capital, and nature, have shaped the crises of the twenty-first century. Sponsored by the Certificate in Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory.

Date: Thursday, September 29
Time: 4:30-6 PM
Place: Downey 113
