Dark Economies: Anxious Futures, Fearful Pasts Conference

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 - 3:43pm
Falmouth University, UK
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 2, 2020

After the success of the Folk Horror in the Twenty First Century conference hosted by Falmouth University, we are holding another related conference in 2020.


The present is dark. With the rise of right-wing populism, global migrations and immigrations, continued violence, abuse and crime, prejudice and intolerance, there is increasing anxiety about the future. The Earth itself is under threat from environmental catastrophe and a mass extinction event is anticipated. The collapse of society, morality, and the environment was often also feared in the past, particularly in Gothic, horror and dystopian fictions and texts. What were the monsters of the past? What are our monsters now?


Theorizing Corporeality in the Climate Change Era

Theorizing about the body has never been more urgent than in our current era of climate change. Stacy Alaimo has compellingly argued that “potent ethical and political possibilities emerge from the literal contact zone between human corporeality and more-than-human nature.” In the decade or so since she first penned those words, these ethical and political possibilities have become even more urgent, and the borders of the contact zones themselves have become more blurred. Climate change has had increasingly intimate corporeal implications (especially in the Global South), and the widening gap between the rich and the poor has only exacerbated these matters, as has the global rise in right-wing extremism.

The first Earth Day, celebrated in the United States on April 22, 1970 by   millions of people and now mobilizing citizens and communities worldwide, represented the first massive expression of public concern with the ecological sustainability of our planet, launching the modern global environmentalist movement. As the world signals its 50th anniversary in 2020, the Symposium (Re)thinking Earth: From Representations of Nature to Climate Change Fiction, aims to bring together an intersection of plural perspectives and representations of the tropes of threatened nature and climate crisis, spread over time, place, formats and aesthetic models, under the collaborative interdisciplinary model of the environmental humanities.

Out of the Classroom and into the Wild: Ecopedagogies for the Anthropocene

We boast of our system of education, but why stop at schoolmasters and schoolhouses? We are all schoolmasters, and our schoolhouse is the universe. To attend chiefly to the desk or schoolhouse while we neglect the scenery in which it is placed is absurd. If we do not look out we shall find our schoolhouse standing in a cow-yard at last. ---Henry David Thoreau, “Huckleberries”
