The University of Portsmouth Environment Network is hosting a free film screening of A Plastic Ocean on Thursday 23 March at 6.30pm.
A Plastic Ocean is a new feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. The film captures never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health.
Following the film, there is an extended question and answer session will follow the film screening with University experts on marine and microplastics and special guest David Jones from Plastic Oceans.
Dr Karl Bell (School of Social, Historical and Literary Studies) has received funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) for new research to explore spiritualism during the First World War.
The project, in collaboration with the Portsmouth Temple of Spiritualism, will examine two types of afterlife on the home front, that of spiritualist communication between the living and the dead, and, more broadly, the emotional aftermath of the First World War in Britain.
If anyone has local/family stories of spiritualist practices in Portsmouth between 1910 and 1930, Dr Bell would like to hear from them.
