Australia from the Heart: Envisioning Affective, Environmental, and Material Reparations
6 – 8 September 2023 | University of the Balearic Islands (Palma, Spain)
Building on the critical work ensuing from the ›affective turn‹ in the humanities and social sciences, we encourage participants to explore the connections between the intimate and the public, the individual and the collective, as well as »the epistemic decolonizing potential in turning to affect as a basis of exploring injustice, conflict, trauma and reparation« (Antwi et al. 2013, 3). EASA favours an inter- and multidisciplinary approach to studies on Australia and can host presentations from a wide range of disciplines and subject areas such as
Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Ethnic Studies, Environmental Studies, Gender Studies, History, Linguistics, Literature, Media and Film Studies, Political Science, Sociology, Visual and Performing Arts, etc.
Please, submit a 250-word abstract and a brief bio note (indicating name, position and institutional affiliation) and using the subject heading “EASA 2023” to Dr. Astrid Schwegler (firstname.lastname@example.org) before 1st March 2023.
Decisions on proposals will be communicated by 1st April 2023.
The event will be held in a hybrid format.
