Call for Papers : Art in the Anthropocene - Events - Trinity Long Room Hub Arts & Humanities Research Institute - Trinity College Dublin

Call for Papers : Art in the Anthropocene - Events - Trinity Long Room Hub Arts & Humanities Research Institute - Trinity College Dublin | Call for Papers: Art, Community, Society, Research, Creativity | Scoop.it
Call for Papers : Art in the Anthropocene Tuesday, 15 January 2019, 11am – 12pm Conference in the Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin, 7 to 9 June 2019 The School for Creative Arts and the “Identities in Transformation” Steering Group invite you to participate in the conference “Art in the Anthropocene” at Trinity College Dublin from Friday 7 June to Sunday 9 June 2019. The conference is being organised in collaboration with the Trinity Centre for Environmental Humanities, and the Science Gallery’s exhibition on PLASTIC. Keynote speakers will include Cary Wolfe, author of What is Posthumanism? ( 2010), Before the Law: Humans and Other Animals in a Biopolitical Frame (2012), and the forthcoming Art and Posthumanism (2019); Una Chaudhury, Director of New York University’s Centre for Experimental Humanities and author of The Stage Lives of Animals: Zooësis and Performance (2017); Anna Tsing (University of California at Santa Cruz and Århus University), author of The Mushroom at the End of the World (2017); and Jussi Parikka (Winchester School of Art/University of Southampton), author of A Geology of Media (2015),  The Anthrobscene (2014) and Insect Media (2010). The Anthropocene has been defined as the present geological epoch in which the earth’s ecosystems and biodiversity are being slowly disrupted by human intervention. The term has become commonly used since the beginning of the twenty-first century when Paul Crutzen argued its importance in a Nature article, and since then scientists have debated its credibility and possible starting point, suggesting the end of the eighteenth century (with the birth of the industrial revolution) or 1945 (with the commencement of nuclear weapons testing).  The notion of the Anthropocene raises important questions that concern the sustainability of the planet.  With seas rising and becoming inexorably acidified and contaminated and the destruction of coral reefs (such as the Great Barrier Reef); with fish life and plankton dying because of climate change and pollution from plastic, oil, and other forms of human waste; with the endangerment and extinction of animal species; with huge tracts of land in Africa being leased by China to feed its own population; with African governments encouraging their citizens to go abroad in order to send back foreign income to sustain their national economies; with aggressive mining  and fracking operations, fertilization, forest fires, and over-cultivation of land; with the ubiquitous burning of fossil fuels and the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere; with deforestation, drought, desertification, poverty and hunger in the global south forcing increasing waves of migration; with melting icebergs,  periodic oil disasters, and emissions of radiation from nuclear power plants as well as the continual threat of nuclear war; and with the rapid increase of the world population to 7 billion (estimated to increase to 10 billion by 2050), Elon Musk has offered a wake-up call by proposing that we need to colonize Mars. Posthumanism has offered an alternative to anthropocentrism and emphasised the importance of the non-human in the challenge against the destructive effects of the Anthropocene. Posthumanism privileges animals, plant life, ecological systems and the environment, as well as providing a feminist perspective on human patriarchy. It emphasizes the protection and conservation of the earth and its inhabitants, recognizing continuity between all living creatures including plants, animals and humans. New trends in philosophy offer new materialism, object-oriented ontologies, and theories of social assemblage. As art is more sensitive in reacting to the issue of the Anthropocene, we encourage papers on Visual art, theatre, performance, film, and new media related to such topics as: Artistic Activism Animals and Art Artificial intelligence and art Art and Ecology Art and the figure of the Refugee Bioart and Microbial art Non-human gaze Plastic art Object-Oriented art Rethinking indigenous cosmologies Posthumanist ethics The conference will precede a major exhibition on PLASTIC at Trinity College’s Science Gallery in June 2019. It is intended that selected papers given at the conference will be developed as chapters for a book. The conference fee of €120 will cover panels, plenary sessions, keynote speakers, coffee and lunch during breaks and a conference dinner. Please send a 250 word abstract of your proposed paper with a brief biography to Professor Steve Wilmer, swilmer@tcd.ie by 15 January 2019. Responses will be given by 31 January 2019.

“Teaching By Place and Space” (SSSL Conference, February 2018) Recent discussions of southern and Confederate memorials in public spaces have emphasized the importance of physical spaces to the story of history. How do physical spaces participate in the creation of historical memory, and how do individuals and institutions in the present interact with spaces of historical significance? This roundtable takes up these questions and applies them in the context of the classroom. How do we, as instructors, account for the histories attached to the spaces in which we teach? How do we consider our own specific locations of higher learning in our courses? How do we teach in or about spaces that are associated with a particular history or historical trauma? And how does the literature we teach aid in connecting our students with historical trauma in local settings and the way memory and narrative are shaped around such sites?

[CFP] How We Make: TRACE Innovation Initiative

[CFP] How We Make: TRACE Innovation Initiative | Call for Papers: Art, Community, Society, Research, Creativity | Scoop.it

TRACE publishes online peer-reviewed collections in ecology, posthumanism, and media studies. Providing an interdisciplinary forum for scholars, we focus on the ethical and material impact of technology. We welcome submissions in a variety of media that engage cultures, theories, and environments to “trace” the connections across and within various ecologies. The third issue of TRACE, How We Make, explores how we make “through, with, and alongside” (N. Katherine Hayles) a larger ecology of technology, society, and design. The growing availability of cheap and easily hackable technology has captured commercial and scholarly attention worldwide, instigating a new type of DIY citizenship built from a hybrid economy of material, conceptual, and digital production. Publications like Make Magazine, online tutorials like Instructables, and community makerspace labs like Artisan’s Asylum offer multiple platforms for ‘how to’ projects– anything from building a home to hacking software or 3D-printing a prosthetic limb. But is it enough to make for making’s sake? And how do we attend to the longer history of makers and makerspaces? This issue offers a critical forum to discuss how technology changes the way we make theoretically and practically. Scholars from communication, design, and media studies, such as Matt Ratto, Victor Papanek, and David Gauntlett, theorize a material-semiotic approach that emphasizes either process or product – the ‘how,’ ‘why,’ or ‘what’ of making. While “critical making” reflects conceptually on the making process, “sustainable design” connects the designer’s role in society with the impact of the final product. Making has also been approached through “DiDIY” (digital do-it-yourself), focusing on digital technologies’ impact on creative projects. Building off this scholarship, “How We Make” asks scholars and makers to critically reflect on the making process in their communities, makerspaces, and classrooms in order to reveal new insight into the maker movement. Using the momentum generated by recent digital humanities scholarship,

CFP: Socially-Engaged Public History: Practice, Ethics and Politics - HistEvents

CFP: Socially-Engaged Public History: Practice, Ethics and Politics - HistEvents | Call for Papers: Art, Community, Society, Research, Creativity | Scoop.it
This conference will explore the practice, ethics and politics of collaborations between academic historians and groups outside the university in socially-engaged ways. It focuses in particular on projects involving groups who have not historically been well represented at universities. Such ‘co-production’ of historical research seeks not simply to engage with marginalised publics or to communicate research findings beyond our usual audiences. Rather it includes members of the public as active participants and partners in the research process. In doing so, it seeks to tap into other forms of expertise beyond academia, to develop new perspectives and approaches, and to produce an enriched and revitalised historical analysis. Such collaborations are often challenging – practically, intellectually and sometimes emotionally. This conference will explore some of the questions they raise about the ethics and politics of doing public history.
What role should historians play when engaging with marginalised, disadvantaged or minority groups? What challenges do historians face when working in collaborative ways with groups who might not have historically had much contact with universities or academics? How can historians create spaces for dialogue and the two-way sharing of expertise? And how can we work with a variety of groups and individuals in a mutually beneficial and non-tokenistic way? What do such collaborations offer at a moment when concerns about racist attacks, inequalities in education and social tensions are so visible?
At the heart of this are a series of questions about the politics of public history. For some practitioners, it is axiomatic that public history has a politics and that politics is left-wing. But  might a politicised public history that seeks social justice actually reinforce the academic echo chamber?
Finally, the conference aims to bring together a range of historian-practitioners to reflect back on our own discipline. What new insights, perspectives and methodologies might historians stand to gain from this? How does socially-engaged or collaborative public history contribute to the discipline of history? How does public history intersect with the politics, identity and emotions of the historian? Does good socially-engaged public history depend on the commitment and emotional investment of the historian?
We welcome proposals for short 10-minute papers or presentations from historians at every stage of their career, in the UK and beyond, and whether they are practising within academia or outside of it, or are interested in/have previously worked with academics. Confirmed speakers include Tanya Evans (Macquarie University), Cathy Gudis (University of California, Riverside), Shabina Aslam (University of Huddersfield), Jessica Hammett (University of Leeds), Sarah Lloyd (University of Hertfordshire), Saima Nasar (University of Bristol), Olivette Otele (Bath Spa University), Elizabeth Pente (University of Huddersfield), Will Pooley (University of Bristol), Gary Rivett (York St John University) and Gavin Schaffer (University of Birmingham). The programme will also feature a workshop with a community group.
