FESTIVAL - SCHOOL OF CYBORG (6-7 NOV)

The School of Cyborg (SoC) is a project that Dundee Based Digital Art Festival NEoN proposes in a joint effort with students from MA Culture Criticism and Curation from the University of the Arts London. The School of Cyborg, an international group of MA students, will “warm up” the city before the festival: they will be present in Dundee the 6th and 7th of November 2021.

The program SoC proposes is oriented to tackle Dundee communities’ digital gaps and aims to involve local groups to raise consciousness on the theme and to provide tools to be active and work for a change. These groups will be paired with internationally renowned digital artists, proposing thematic workshops where the presence of locals will be paired with the effort of artists, aiming to enhance knowledge creation and sharing. The program features workshops, talks and roundtables to share the results of the workshops with the city. This event will also be a starting point for NEoN’s project of local community wifi.
Integration and inclusion become key features for the project, especially when dealing with difficult-to-reach communities in the city. To do this, the events and the workshops will be designed and thought about with the communities involved.

PhEMINAR "MOVING WITH THE TROUBLE WITH Dr. BEATRICE ALLEGRANTI" - (17 NOV)

PhEminar 8: Moving with the Trouble with Dr. Beatrice Allegranti

Developed from the Moving Kinship project for people living with young onset dementia, this new dance film explores how we touch the alterity within, the dark matter. Moving with the Trouble and the transdisciplinary PhEMaterialist research that informs it, reflects on transgenerational mourning, the bonds of resistance, and our infinite relationship with the more-than-human. In doing so, the film invites audiences to tune our attention to micro-activisms present in movement exchange as we show up to collective understandings of the re-territorialization of power and privilege in more-than-human ways.

The PhEminar will offer brief context before screening the film. Following the screening, and as a starting point for discussion, I will invite PhEmaterialist participants to attune to their own micro-movements as a way of noticing and being curious about what bearing witness has evoked. Please bring paper and pens to write and draw!(Image credit: Camilla Grenwell)

FIFTH DELEUZE AND GUATTARI STUDIES IN INDIA CONFERENCE - (11-14 NOV) 
Deleuze and Guattari Studies in India Collective after the successful completion of Manipal, Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi conferences announces its fifth conference to be held online from 11-14 November 2021 focusing on the pertinent and contemporary theme of ‘infinite life’.

Contemporary research both in humanities and social sciences seems to be converging on a common point, which is life, or more precisely, the “distinction between the living and the non-living”. As  part of it , new analytic strategies are mooted that involve a wide spectrum of disciplines and perspectives. Affective turn, ontological turn, new materialism, speculative realism, postcolonial studies, feminism, queer and transgender studies, critical race studies, technoscience studies, and Anthropocene are a few of them that have chosen life as their major theoretical object. This contemporary development is complemented by the return of  some old philosophies as well like animism and vitalism so as to begin their own new experiments with life. We also see that the obsession with life straying into strange territories  that proliferate new versions like “beta life”, “hypothetical life”, “nonstandard life”, “nonterran life”, “unfamiliar life”, “life as we do not know”, “alternative biology”,  “Life 2.0.” , and so on. 

Truly life has spread out in a limitless cosmic canvas. The spatial range is astounding. From the ocean’s depth to astral bodies life is being searched for avidly. On the other side, new loci and versions of life are emerging in astounding speed. We need not travel to the far end of the universe to see the complexities of life. New life forms are floating on our own computer screens today; a computer program run by the principle of cellular automata is deemed to be alive; a computer virus is as deadly as a biological virus.  There exists a fundamental equivalence between the genetic and the computer codes.

Further info on the conference will be available HERE

CFP: FEMINIST ART, TECHNOLOGICA PRACTICES, LITERATURE, NEW MATERIALISM, POSTHUMANITIES (by 21 NOV)

We are happy to announce a "Feminist Art, Technological Practices, Literature, New materialism, Posthumanities" strand 4 at the 11th European Feminist Research Conference (Milan, June 2022)

If interested, you can apply by Nov 21st.

Coordinators: Sibel Yardimci, Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University; Federica Timeto, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice; Pat Treusch, University of Kassel; Beatriz Revelles Benavente, University of Granada; Silvia Luraschi, University of Milano-Bicocca.
 
Departing from/drawing on Haraway’s situated knowledges, one of the most important contributions of new materialisms to feminisms is a situated methodology in which the “God trick” (Haraway) is challenged, and the researching subject, as well as the researched object are understood as parts of a dynamic, affective research relationship. The political and ethical consequences of such an approach are paramount: Differences are never already there to be represented from the outside but are always in the making; each epistemological intervention at the same time interferes with the material-semiotic reconfigurations of the world, it is rather an engaged practice that that performs the co-emergence of both meaning and matter.
 
A selection of presented papers will be published in the journal Matter: Journal of New Materialist Research.

CFP: NON-WESTERN APPROACHES IN ENVIRONMETNAL HUMANITIES (by 15 JAN)

International Conference: Non-Western Approaches in Environmental Humanities (11–13 July 2022) organized by The project “Non-anthropocentric Cultural Subjectivity” realized as part of the “Excellence Initiative – Research University” programme at the University of Warsaw. Via Zoom worldwide.
 
Call for papers (Deadline for abstract submission: 15 January 2022) 

The main aim of the conference (which is correlated with the topics of the project “Non-anthropocentric Cultural Subjectivity” realized as part of the “Excellence Initiative – Research University” programme at the University of Warsaw) is to reflect on theoretical frameworks in environmental humanities which have emerged as alternative or complementary to western approaches. We would like to support theoretical reflections concerning the relationship between human beings and the environment that have been developed in non-western cultural contexts. By helping to determine the problems crucial for “non-western” environmental humanities, the conference will also be a starting point for further cooperation and research. 
 

In order to apply for the conference please send to nonwesternapproaches@uw.edu.pl


Filled application form (both for individual papers and pre-organized panels) attached to the CFP. 2. Filled travel grant application form (if applicable) attached to the CFP.
