Provocations and Possibilities ‘in’ and ‘of’ the Anthropocene: Postgraduate Snapshots

Session convenors: Katie Ledingham, Suzanne Hocknell, & Emma Spence.
Sponsored by the Postgraduate Forum & the Social and Cultural Geography Research Group.

RGS-IBG Annual International Conference, University of Exeter 1-4 September 2015

The aim of this session is to explore the different ways in which postgraduate researchers in Social and Cultural Geography are both engaging with and attending to the manifold provocations posed by the concept of the Anthropocene. We are encouraging postgraduates to present a brief ‘snapshot’ of their work (whether a photograph, a quotation, a field diary entry, an image of an object, or mini-video clip) as a focus for 5-10 minute contributions that explore the ways in which their theoretical and/or methodological interventions are acting to work with and against the rise of the Anthropocene. It is envisaged that the snapshot will be the main artefact around which each contribution is orientated. We encourage participants to fully utilise their snapshots in ways which further deepen and enrich the developing trajectories, tensions, and textures associated with the mobilisation of this concept.

The extended deadline for submissions is Friday 3rd April 2015.

Please include:
•A title for your ‘Snapshot’
•An abstract (max 150 words)
•A short description of how your presentation will use your snapshot (max 100 words)
•Your name, affiliation and contact details (email address)
•Year of research (Masters, MPhil/PhD – 1, 2, 3, 3+)
