Call For Papers

SCIENCE & THE HUMANITIES CONFRONT THE ANTHROPOCENE

June 27th, 2015 Boston University Center for Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning
Keynote Address by Paul Robbins, director of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 10th

This summer conference will explore the convergence of science and the humanities as we seek to understand the impact of current ecological and technological trends on the planet and on humanity itself. We invite presentations of interdisciplinary research and pedagogy addressing what has variously been termed the “end of Nature” and the “Anthropocene.” Featured topics will include, but will not be limited to, the following: catastrophic climate change, mass extinctions, geoengineering, synthetic biology, AI, and transhumanism. We seek original papers that integrate topics from science and the humanities in order to confront those aspects of globalization that have compelled scholars to rethink their conceptions of both “nature” and “human nature” in the twenty-first century.

Papers presented at this conference will be considered for publication in a forthcoming volume published by Lexington Books (Rowman & Littlefield) as part of an ongoing series on Ecocritical Theory and Practice edited by Douglas Vakoch.

Please send a 200 to 250 word paper proposal and a current CV to Richard Samuel Deese, Center for Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning at Boston University: rsdeese@bu.edu

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: APRIL 10th, 2015.

CONFERENCE DATE: SATURDAY, JUNE 27th, 2015 at Boston University.
