Full Programme:


Engaging Refugee Narratives explores how narratives by and about
refugees and migrants are disseminated, how ideas become shared and
meaningful to a larger group, how influence builds. The three sessions
of this event focus on digital forms of communication and online
archiving, graphic memoir and cartooning, varied forms of live
performance of telling stories. Over two days at University College
London, talks, demonstrations, interactive workshops, and roundtable
discussions are led by researchers, artists, writers, activists and
practitioners. All sessions are open to the public.

This event, the third in our series, recognizes the need to signal the
importance of engagement with the narratives not only of refugees but
the many others whose lives are in transition. Ultimately we hope that
such engagement and interventions pave the way towards social

The complete programme can be found on our website. Please note that you need
to register seperately for each day you wish to attend.
We hope you can make it, and look forward to seeing you there!

Governance and Planetary Crises- A free half-day conference at the
University of Kent, Canterbury- June 2

Governance and Planetary Crises: Challenges and Agendas for Human Ecology
A special event, exploring the concept of planetary governance in an
age of uncertainty and human-induced crises​, School of Anthropology
and Conservation, University of Kent.

2 June 2017, 10.00-13.00, School of Anthropology and Conservation
Lecture Theatre 1, Marlowe Building, University of Kent, Canterbury

Dr. Frank Biermann (Utrecht University, The Netherlands), Navigating
the Anthropocene: From Environmental Policy to Earth System Governance.
Philipp Pattberg (VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Governing
the Anthropocene: Challenges and Prospects.
Dr Rory Rowan (University of Zurich, Switzerland), Governing the
Earth: Earth System Governance and the Post-Political.
Dr. Davor Vidas (The Fridtjof Nansen Institute, Norway), The
Anthropocene: The New Meaning of Change and Stability Under
International Law.

About this event
This special event seeks to explore a central paradox confronting
industrial society, if not humanity, as it heads into the twenty-first
century: the collective ability of humans, or of some humans at any
rate, to fundamentally transform the Earth and its life-supporting
capability is not matched by an ability to act collectively and
concertedly in a way that supports those capacities over the
foreseeable future. Our motivation to invite a select group of
scholars who are, each in their own way, directly engaged with this
conundrum, emerges from the understanding that the Anthropocene, with
its multiple, existential, urgent, cascading and concatenating crises,
challenges many of the core categories and assumptions of the various
disciplines represented in the School of Anthropology and
Conservation, and which shape and guide our research on
human-environment interactions. Drawn from diverse disciplinary
starting points, each speaker will respond to the provocation that the
Anthropocene, formulated in terms of governance and planetary-scale
problems and processes, signals not just a new geological epoch, but a
new epoch of thought and politics, with its attendant epistemic,
methodological, institutional, normative and legal dimensions.

Open Event at Congress

The nacre button: Mimesis and alterity
Speaker: María Gabriela Nouzeilles, Emory L. Ford Professor of Spanish
and Professor at the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Princeton

Friday, June 2, 2017
VIC- Victoria 205
Ryerson University.

This presentation focuses on the archival traces left behind by the
Selkman, Onas, and Yamanas, the Indigenous peoples who used to inhabit
Tierra del Fuego and Southern Patagonia and who were obliterated by
political, economic, and cultural violence and disease. I am
particularly interested in the phantasmatic returns of their histories
and voices in the works by anthropologists, writers, photographers,
and filmmakers, who think about modernity as the result of the
interplay between mimesis and alterity.

With financial support from the Federation for the Humanities and
Social Sciences International Keynote Speaker Support Fund.

Sponsored by the Canadian Association of Hispanics (CAH)
