Belinda Clark's picture

A day and a half workshop and roundtable for UK Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers in the Humanities

27-28 October 2017 - St Antony’s College, Oxford

Disciplines include but not limited to: History, Art, Architecture, Literature, Geography, Theology, Sociology, Politics, Economics and Anthropology.

How does research on Japan inform ecological practice that is pertinent beyond the framework of area studies, and vice versa? If we were to place nature at the core of our studies of human activities, what new kinds of interdisciplinarity and knowledge would be possible, and how would we reorganize our academic disciplines? This workshop invites individual papers from UK-based Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers within the Humanities for an inter-disciplinary discussion with guidance from established scholars and practitioners.

Abstracts of c. 300 words, together with a brief biography of c. 150 words, to:
ecologies.knowledgeandpractice@gmail.com  by 31st August.
