Bio (via ORCID)
Reuben Martens is a PhD Fellow of the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO) and works in joint fellowship at KU Leuven's Research Team English Literature (RTEL) and Ghent University's Centre for Cinema and Media Studies (CIMS). His personal FWO-project, “Beyond Petroleum: Reimagining Energy in Contemporary Film and Literature” (2017-2021) aims to study the cultural representation of alternative energy resources in contemporary Anglophone & European cinema and literature. Studying the values, narratives, and aesthetics that underscore these alternative resources, this project will offer a valuable insight into newly developing ideas on energy in times of critical climate change and energy insecurity.
