The Cabot Institute will host a major international conference - Society in the Anthropocene – on 24 and 25 June 2013, to address and discuss these questions across the social science disciplines.
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. As a participant, there will be numerous opportunities to contribute your views, react to the material presented and form new research relationships.
The conference will take place on 24 and 25 June 2013, at the University of Bristol, and is open to academics from a broad range of disciplines and all career stages. The event is being supported by the journal Economy and Society and the Cabot Institute. Professor Wendy Larner (School of Geographical Sciences) and Professor Tom Osborne (School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies) are convening the conference. Professor Mark Duffield, recently retired head of the Global Insecurities Centre, will give the evening keynote lecture on 24 June.
Tickets cost £20 for the two-day conference plus £20 for conference dinner on the evening of 24 June at the Orangery, Goldney Hall.
Tickets are limited. Please book your place at the University of Bristol online shop.
