About the Event
Dr. Ramzi Fawaz will explore how the animated feature film Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse (2018) and its 2023 sequel, Across the Spider-Verse, present the multiverse as a distinctly psychedelic figure for conceiving differences as an endless web of relations across multiple dimensions rather than rigidly formed identities barred from communion by structural inequality.
