Call for papers — "Everyday Affects of Ecological Globalization"

A conference by the Ecological Globalizations Research Group

cr. Amazônia Real — BARCARENA CONTAMINACOES PEDROSA AMAZONIAREAL-179

The Ecological Globalizations Research Group (https://projects.au.dk/ecoglobal) is excited to invite you all to submit an proposal to our interdisciplinary conference – Everyday Affects of Ecological Globalization – taking place from June 1-3 2022 at Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark.

This conference will explore the place of everyday affects in processes of large-scale and long-range ecological transformation. It asks: What are the world-making ecological effects of seemingly intimate affects? How are ostensibly everyday sensibilities bound up with radical changes in more-than-human landscapes? We invite contributions from scholars exploring the planetary impacts of affective practices from a range of disciplinary and analytical perspectives. Our focus is on theoretical insights grounded in empirical case studies.

Proposals should be sent to the Aarhus University's Centre for Environmental Humanities at ceh@cas.au.dk by April 1st 2022.

More details and the full call for papers can be found in the PDF below. Please get in touch with Michael Vine (vine@eth.mpg.de) or Heather Swanson (ikshswanson@cas.au.dk) with any questions. We look forward to receiving your proposals.
