Anthropocene Campus Event, Melbourne 2018 (ACM18)

APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN, Anthropocene Campus Melbourne 2018 (ACM18)

Applications to participate in Anthropocene Campus Melbourne 2018 (ACM18) are now open. Applications close at midnight AEDT on Tuesday 3 April 2018. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by Monday 23 April 2018. PhD candidates, Humanities, Arts and Social Science scholars at all levels, as well as artists, physical scientists, engineers, and other practitioners, are encouraged to apply.

This four-day event – 3-6 September 2018 – engages in recent debates that have occurred over the past decade about the existence and start date of 'the Anthropocene'. Reference to the age of the human has provided an important prompt for academics, artists and others to critically reconsider how knowledge is produced and reproduced. What forms of critique, knowledge-making and collaboration are needed to meet the challenges we now face? Across the four days of ACM18 participants will engage in a range of lectures, field trips, and workshops in Melbourne and the wider area exploring the theme of 'The Elemental'.

ACM18 will be hosted by Deakin University's Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation and Deakin Science and Society Network in partnership with the University of New South Wales Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Centro de Investigación para la Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres (CIGIDEN) and with support from the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science.

One day conference: Race and Surveillance, Birkbeck , London, 4 May 2018
This event co-hosted by the Birkbeck Centre for Research on Race and Law and the Vasari Research Centre for Art and Technology might be of interest. 

Race and Surveillance
This one day conference on race and surveillance will explore the way in which race is produced and formed by contemporary surveillance practices and techniques. Racialised differences are reproduced and rearticulated in the use of new surveillance methods, most clearly in terms of pre-crime practices and mechanisms. There has been strong and public resistance to the phenomenon of normalised and blanket surveillance since Edward Snowden's revelations about the practices of the National Security Agency (NSA) in the US. However, scholarly scrutiny of the differential material and discursive effects of surveillance is urgently needed.
Contemporary practices of surveillance are based on long histories of inventing 'other races' and the observation and control of minoritised 'communities' in the colonies and imperial centres. Understanding contemporary surveillance practices demands understanding their origins in and ongoing connection to colonial histories. Important scholarly interventions on the intersection between race and surveillance exist in the US (Safiya Umoja Noble 2018; Simone Browne 2015; Arun Kundnani and Deepa Kumar 2015). However, the conjunction between race and surveillance is under-researched in Britain and Europe, and this conference will take steps to remedying this.
