Speculations and fictions allow us to journey through time, drawing on the narratives of the pasts to craft and shape possible futures. These narratives have the potential to influence the present, and they call a linear conception of time into question. Stories shatter into fragments, bound together diagrammatically or as a bricolage, queering historical narratives, regimes, and geographies.

If the emergence of the Anthropocene implies an epistemological shift, how might this transform the way we think about representation and, more specifically, its geopolitics?  What kinds of representations carry significant material, metaphorical and methodological implications for this question, and can help us to 'situate' ourselves – if that is a still viable term – in our new conditions of groundlessness and scalelessness?

Time: Feb. 17, 2017

This programme aims to create an interdisciplinary and intergenerational exchange between research and art practices around questions concerning the invention of forms of representation in the age of globalisation. The primary goal of this programme is to interrogate conventional modes of knowledge production that, by and large, marginalise the arts and their heuristic properties, in social science and humanities. Our intention is to stimulate a debate addressing all aspects of collaboration between artists and the academic world. We look for artistic and intellectual responses to the emerging and existing tensions at the age of globalisation.

Time: Feb. 1, 2017

Deadline for submissions: 31 January 2017

Annual Cultural Studies Graduate Student Conference

Organised by a group of Cultural Studies graduate students involved in modes of inquiry that intersect the humanities, social sciences, sciences, technology, activism, and the arts, UnDisciplined is a space for sharing scholarly, artistic, and/or activist work that theorizes or reveals forces that shape human experience. Cultural Studies draws on a range of methods and critical theories, empowering researchers to break down conventional divisions not only among academic disciplines but also between academia and activism, as well as between theoretical critique and cultural production. In this way, Cultural Studies brings together researchers focused on areas and fields, rather than disciplines and traditions.

International Conference on Balkan Cinema

Belgrade, Serbia: 11- 13 June, 2016

Following on from the first International Conference on Balkan Cinema that took place in Athens in 2015, Balkan Cinema on the Crossroads: From Nitrate to Digital aims to explore the trajectory of Balkan cinema from the early nitrate days to the contemporary digital era, by highlighting connections, similarities and comparable patterns across the cinemas of the region. With few exceptions, linguistic and political differences have usually led to nation-based approaches to the cinemas of the region. This series of conferences aims to develop transnational scholarship, transcend Balkanism and exoticism, andoffer critical explorations of historical and contemporary manifestations of South Eastern European cinemas. The ambition is both to enlighten the past by proposing new ways of examining the region’s cinema history; and to build foundations for future cross-cultural collaborations and mutual prospects.

Time: Jan. 20, 2017

Our experience of climate change is always mediated. Its effects are encountered through changing weather patterns, including the storms, floods, and droughts that afflict communities across the world. They are also encountered through different forms of representation: a novel imagining a desiccated future Earth; a television documentary about coral bleaching; a graph of rising global temperatures. Researchers increasingly understand climate change as a cultural and political issue, and are concerned with the ways in which it is mediated in different contexts, and to different audiences.
