Michelle Yates (Columbia College Chicago) draws on feminist ecology and a critical eating studies lens to highlight the way in which two seemingly progressive environmentalist Hollywood films, "Soylent Green" (1973) and "Interstellar" (2014), utilize climate change as a recuperative strategy for the re-privileging of hegemonic white masculinity.
This talk is offered as part of the series "Critical Issues in Cultural Studies: The 'Forgotten Man' in the Trump Era."
