Society in the Anthropocene Conference

Image

On June 24th and 25th, the Cabot Institute at the University of Bristol is hosting a major international conference to discuss the role and value of social sciences for understanding the Anthropocene.

The conference brings socio-legal, political, sociological, anthropological and geographical perspectives to issues such as global environmental uncertainty, carbon politics, new patterns of urban resilience and global containment, and changing relationships between human and non-human worlds.   Our aim in hosting this conference is to generate innovative understandings of the Anthropocene and its emergent constellations of life and knowledge.

Confirmed speakers include Katherine Gibson, Tania Li, Erik Swyngedouw, and Andrew Barry and the conference is open to academics from a broad range of disciplines and all career stages. See http://www.bris.ac.uk/cabot/events/2013/206.html for more details and ticket booking.
