Listen to this posting

Multiple environmental crises are increasingly inescapable at both transnational and local levels and the role of the humanities in addition to technology and politics is more and more recognized as central for exploring and finding solutions. Representations of nature’s agency have become central to many studies conducted in literature, culture studies, philosophy, history, sociology or political science. This conference aims to explore the relationship between the physical environment and text in its broader meaning as well as analyse the social concerns raised by environmental crises.

Conference panels will be related, but not limited, to:

Sustainable Development
Biopolitics
Animal Studies
Cultural and Literary Ecology
Ecolinguistics
Ecosophy
Ethnobiology
Ecofeminism
Posthumanism
Environmental Arts
Environmental History
We invite proposals from various disciplines including political sciences, history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, literature, linguistics, etc.
