2019 Colloquium RFP
2019 Nature, Ecology, & Society Colloquium
Martin E. Segal Theatre at The Graduate Center, CUNY
Friday, March 1st, 2019: 10:00 am-5:00 pm
Call for Presentations: Re-imagining Nature, Ecology, and Society
Deadline for submissions: January 31st, 2019
The Nature, Ecology, & Society (NES) Colloquium is a forum for research and action directed towards future sustainability and justice. This forum is intended to spotlight awareness, dialogue and collaboration between researchers and action-oriented people, especially within the City University of New York, but outside CUNY as well. The 2019 Nature, Ecology, & Society Colloquium seeks to foster a dialogue among researchers across various disciplines who are interested in addressing imminent questions around ways of re-imagining nature, ecology, and society.
Request for Presentations:
We invite all interested individuals or collectives to submit an abstract for either a poster, presentation, panel, or round-table discussion. We continue the tradition of creating a space for interdisciplinary conversation at the 2019 NES Colloquium by requesting proposals from within, and outside, CUNY and from allied students, faculty, artists, professionals, activists, designers, journalists, musicians, performers, filmmakers, and scholars in the humanities and natural, physical, and social sciences.
Possible topics include:
– Contested meanings of “nature,” “ecology,” and “society”
– Sustainability and/or conservation
– Intersections and implications of emerging technology/science and everyday life
– What about nature, ecology, and society should not be re-imagined
We especially seek submissions from those who find value in multi- and inter-disciplinarity and are interested in broadening their theories, practices, and ideals.
Abstracts and presenter information should be submitted by January 31st, 2019. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words. Proposals that have already been published or presented at conferences are welcome. Presenters of accepted proposals will be notified by February 11th, 2019. Presentations will be allotted 20 minutes; panel and workshop sessions will be allotted one hour. * Time allotments are subject to change
