A Chemical History of Film: Kodak and the Manhattan Project
Prof. Alice Lovejoy (University of Minnesota)
Lovejoy’s lecture presents material from her book project entitled Militant Chemistry: Film and its Raw Materials. Her book is a history of film stock from the turn of the twentieth century through the early Cold War. Following film and its components between the United States, Germany, Britain, Eastern Europe, and Francophone African colonies, the book situates the material and its manufacturing within the chemical industry, and considers its entwining with violence of various kinds—military, political, colonial, and environmental.
