International Conference - Knowledge / Culture / Ecologies
Ecological change and catastrophe are proliferating in a world in flux and crisis. These new socio-ecological assemblages are creating forms of interspecies intimacy and environmental emergency that challenge existing knowledge practices and demand different modes of collaborating and acting. If life on earth is changing for everybody and everything how can we invent different habitats, milieus, ways of being together that enable more things to matter and make a difference? How are novel forms of social cohesion emerging around socio-environmental conflicts and justice? What experimental knowledge and political practices do we need to understand these emergent socioecologies and provoke new ones? And how do these profound earthly challenges intersect with obdurate and unevenly distributed forms of violence and inequality/exploitation particularly in the ‘global south’?

We invite academics, practitioners and activists from a range of backgrounds and knowledge institutions to debate the shifting roles of knowledge, culture and ecologies in historical, contemporary and future scenarios of crisis, environmental justice and inequality, governance, socio-environmental change and reckonings with nature and a diversity of cosmologies.
