CFP: International Conference on Environmental Humanities

International Conference on Environmental Humanities

Stories, Myths, and Arts to Envision a Change

Alcalá de Henares, July 3-6, 2018

Environmental humanities entail a transdisciplinary and transnational critical framework that is rapidly emerging in the last decade. This framework challenges traditional divisions among human, social, and environmental sciences, since they have proven to be obsolete in confronting, understanding, and articulating the most pressing social, cultural, and environmental challenges of the 21st century, as well as their multiple scales, risks, and representational difficulties. Environmental humanities emerge out of the convergence among environmental history and philosophy, ecocriticism, art and ecology, de-/post-colonial environmental thinking, earth systems science, philosophy of science, social and political ecology, ecofeminism, and so on. This international conference attempts to contribute to this fascinating debate while introducing it in Spain, where it has not yet been established.

“O rural depois do fogo” - VII Congresso de Estudos Rurais - VII CER (Escola Superior Agrária de Coimbra, 23-24 de março de 2018)

Depois dos grandes incêndios que assolaram o país no verão de 2017, a Sociedade Portuguesa de Estudos Rurais (SPER), em colaboração com a Escola Superior Agrária de Coimbra (ESAC), dedica o seu VII Congresso ao tema “O rural depois do fogo”, previsto para os dias 23 e 24 de março de 2018.
 
Depois do “luto” sobre a catástrofe, entende-se que será o tempo apropriado para analisar e discutir as causas principais dos incêndios rurais, os seus impactes sociais e económicos, formas de os mitigar e controlar, tendo em vista uma melhor gestão dos espaços rurais, mais sustentável e com maior coesão social e territorial.
 
Para além de convidados de reputado mérito nacional, convidam-se ainda estudantes, técnicos, investigadores, gestores e decisores institucionais a apresentaram propostas de comunicações a serem discutidas no decorrer do congresso. Os resumos das comunicações poderão ser enviados online, através da página da SPER, a partir de 15 de dezembro de 2017 (mais informação em anexo).
