Call for papers for a symposium on Immortality and Infinitude in the Anthropocene at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm (2-4 December 2014) organised by network member Michelle Bastian with Thom van Dooren.
Full details are here: http://www.immortalityandinfinitude.net
The symposium aims
to explore the shifting relationships between time, mortality and finitude in the context of the Anthropocene. In particular, we are interested in the kinds of critical approaches to time-telling, knowledge-making and care-taking that might be called for by way of response. How might we ‘learn to be affected’ (Despret) in new ways; how might practices of ‘passionate immersion’ create new avenues for hope, care and knowledge (Tsing; Haraway)?
