The Department of English Language and Literature is proud to announce “‘another, flickering world’: Petrocultures of the North Atlantic,” a talk by Dr. Derek Gladwin to take place Friday November 24, 3-5pm in Hagey Hall 373. All are welcome to attend. 


This talk explores the relationship between oil and memory in the North Sea. Linking place-based poetry, film, and web-based media, this talk considers how Roseanne Watt’s filmpoem Sullom (2014) unsettles dominant histories of North Sea oil culture (petroculture) in the Shetland Isles by confronting environmental and spatial injustices. Sullom’s musical score offers an additional element that creates an anti-aesthetic, ironizing petrochemical advertisement campaigns produced by energy companies such as Suncor Energy’s See What Yes Can Do (2013). Watt’s filmpoem ultimately confronts the spaces of Sullom Voe, which is an enormous oil terminal on Shetland, through a combination of literary and visual narratives of place that reclaim ways of being in the world from the dominant petroculture in which they function.
