Science in Pop Culture

We encounter science quite often in fictional films, so the question of how science influences content that is not primarily perceived as educational remains an attractive topic. And how these films affect science.

Many of us get the first notion of scientific topics through popular culture, whether it concerns the work of particular scientists or the scientific theories themselves. And let’s not forget that it can turn around and popular culture can inspire the field of science. One of the ways in which AFO critically reflects this relationship is the non-competition section Science in Pop Culture. This time, we will take a look at examples of fiction films that approach the topics of identity, time, or economics, as well as fandoms, arcades or environmentalism in animated cinema. In addition to film screenings and lectures, live podcasts will also make their return. May the Science be with you!
