"Race: Embodying Academia"

University at Albany’s 17th annual English Graduate Student Organization Conference

Date: April 5-6, 2019

Racialization is not a "biological or cultural descriptor but a conglomerate of sociopolitical relations that discipline humanity into full humans, not-quite-humans, and nonhumans . . ."

Corroding the Now: Poetry + Science|SF

Monday, January 14, 2019

The world we inhabit is framed, driven, (re)produced, and conceptualised by and through science. Science as a mode of knowing contours the prevailing episteme, whilst technological innovation continues to remake work and leisure experience. At the same time, society is both reflected and in turn formed by science fiction (SF): as contributor to the nostalgia economy, as a dominant visual-commercial aesthetic, as a mimetic index of the present’s utopian and dystopian tendencies. The now is a time of extreme precarity. We face a raft of catastrophes – political, socioeconomic, and, most pressingly, ecological. And yet, even as our own survival comes into question, capitalism itself seems unassailable, primed to outlast ‘humanity.’

It matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what ties tie ties.

This panel invites interdisciplinary thinkers to transcend standardized methodologies for teaching and learning about the environment.  The ASLE Biennial Conference (themed 'Paradise on Fire') will be held at University of California, Davis, from June 26-30, 2019.

 

Paradise is burning - or melting, flooding, or otherwise collapsing.  In actuality, these collapses are simultaneous, or convergent as Christian Parenti has termed it.  Or, as a recent article states, "when the Arctic melts, the West burns."
