NemLa 2017 - Baltimore March 23-26 Thinking Space in the Anthropocene Era: Eco-criticism and Cosmopolitics
This seminar invites explorations on how to articulate theoretical reflections on spatiality within the frameworks of Ecocriticism and Cosmopolitics. In order to problematize the complex relationship that human beings establish with their physical environment, we seek to trace a genealogy of theorists who have elaborated different notions of space, from Humboldt’s understanding of the idea of Kosmos and Uexküll’s reflections on the concept of Umwelt, to the work of more contemporary authors such as Deleuze, Guattari, Stengers, Sloterdijk, Latour and Agamben.
