Australia's response to the Syrian refugee crisis has raised issues in areas as diverse as immigration, religious tolerance and basic concepts of humanity.

We particularly invite papers that address boundaries that exist within, and between, academic disciplines and research themes. Topics include, but are not limited to:

Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics

.

The upcoming issue of Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics will discuss art's relationship with political ecology: What role does art have to play – if any – under the precariously situated human and environmental consequences of neoliberalism and its political geography? Which potentials can be found in locally situated artistic discourses and re-imaginations of political ecology, for influencing global discourses on climate change? How can the dialogue between culturally and historically different ecological imaginaries and eco-philosophical traditions be significant in an era marked by unprecedented threats to the environment?

CALL FOR PAPERS - REVOLUTIONARY GENDERS

Deadline for submissions: September 21, 2016

Conference dates: November 18 & 19, 2016, NUI Galway

The quest for equality always involves change, sometimes revolutionary change. This change, this revolution can be slow, living in the shadows, waiting for the moment to strike. Or it can be loud, visible and quick. Either way the landscape is changed.
In the wake of a revolution what remains? What is left behind? What changes? And for whom? What compromises are made?

This panel invites papers that redefine modernist strategies, gestures, performances, objects, texts, and archives by situating them in and across the Pacific. More than a spatial or geopolitical category, transpacific networks have become concentrations of feminized and racially-marked labor under global capitalism.
