ULTIMATUM

El Citep (Centro de Innovación en Tecnología y Pedagogía) dependiente del rectorado de la Universidad de Buenos Aires presenta un juego gratuito virtual en el que aborda la temática ambiental.

La ciudad de Pompeii amaneció enterrada en basura. Los rellenos sanitarios en los que se depositaban los desechos generados por sus habitantes colapsaron.

El gobierno de la ciudad convoca a voluntarixs a integrarse a los equipos de cada barrio para ayudar a resolver la crisis ambiental.

  • Convertite en ciudadanx de Pompeii, jugá e iniciate en la lectura de textos académicos que te ayudarán a encontrar soluciones y ganar puntos.
  • Elegí desde qué rol colaborar y creá materiales de difusión que tiendan puentes entre la ficción y la realidad.
  • Interactuá con otrxs para proponer estrategias que mejoren la situación de tu barrio y tus vecinxs.

Tendrás cuatro semanas para atravesar diversos desafíos que te llevarán a aprender sobre la problemática y a contribuir en su resolución.

Responsables del gobierno, medios de comunicación, activistas, expertos, líderes barriales e influencers serán protagonistas clave de esta experiencia, interactuando con lxs ciudadanxs a través de las redes sociales. ¡Seguilxs!

Vegetal Poetics: Narrating Plants in Culture and History International conference of the Literary and Cultural Plant Studies Network in cooperation with Deutsches Hygiene-Museum

Vegetal Poetics: Narrating Plants in Culture and History

International conference of the Literary and Cultural Plant Studies Network
in cooperation with Deutsches Hygiene-Museum

June 6-8, 2019, Dresden, Germany

Whether in the garden, house, field, or forest, plants are all around us, but we often do not notice them. This “plant blindness” (Wandersee & Schussler) also extends to the abundance of plants in literature, and it obscures their roles in cultural and historical developments. Recent (critical) plant studies research in humanities disciplines such as philosophy, art history, literature, history, gender and cultural studies has begun to bring plants out of the ornamental background and the realm of the symbolic in order to investigate the role of botanical entities and the imagination surrounding vegetal matter(s).

Building on these forays into plant studies, this conference asks about the nature of vegetal poetics. What kinds of stories are told about, with, and by plants, and how? In which ways and to what effect do the differences but also commonalities between people and plants catalyze ecocentric, ecological, or ecocritical literature? And how do plant (hi)stories relate to the material, epistemological, cultural, aesthetic, and affective environments that these narratives co-constitute? The conference invites an exploration of these and other questions about vegetal “texts” and “narration” in the broadest sense. Looking at fictional and non-fictional accounts of plants throughout history, these inquiries will broaden the scope of traditional interpretations of the vegetal world in order to reach a new understanding of the role plants play in our cultural and literary imagination.

By bringing together scholars from a variety of disciplines who engage with plants in literature, culture, and history, this international and interdisciplinary conference provides a space for conversations about the methodologies and materials of this emerging research area. In the spirit of the Literary and Cultural Plant Studies Network, the meeting seeks to create connections and spur collaborations across disciplinary and geographical borders. All events will take place in the context of the exhibit “People and Plants” (April 2019-2020) at the German Hygiene Museum.

 

Interested scholars are invited to submit a CV or short bio and a ca. 350-word proposal for a 30-minute conference paper to Joela Jacobs (joelajacobs@email.arizona.edu), Isabel Kranz (isabel.kranz@univie.ac.at), and Solvejg Nitzke (solvejg.nitzke@tu-dresden.de) by November 1, 2018. We are also open to alternative presentation formats of research results, for instance poster presentations. We expressly encourage junior scholars to apply. Pending the outcome of funding applications, we will be able to defray travel and accommodation costs partly or in full. Please direct any questions to the above addresses and become a part of the Plant Network, whether you can join us in Dresden or not.

4th International Conference on Ecolinguistics (ICE-4) Languaging and Eco-civilizations: Towards Consilience with the Life Sciences University of Southern Denmark (Odense Campus) 12th to 15th of August 2019

The 4th International Conference on Ecolinguistics addresses: Languaging and Eco-civilization: Towards Consilience with the Life Sciences. The conference aims to bring about consilience (a bringing forth of new knowledge) that can unite those who acknowledge human responsibility for the well-being of the living world. Accordingly, we aim to connect ecolinguists with work in fields that include bio-ethics, ecocriticism, biosemiotics, economics and the environmental sciences. Drawing on Eastern and Western thought, ecolinguistics is developing into a discipline built on a set of international conferences, a global network of ecolinguistic scholars, and a newly established journal and book series. ICE-4 extends how the previous three ICE conferences (held in Guangzhou, Beijing, and Guiyang) have linked ecolinguistics to the policy of building an ecological civilization based on Chinese characteristics. Thus, the conference will strive to construct new ways of drawing on languages and languaging to create sustainable eco-civilizations. Accordingly, ICE-4 will use a multidisciplinary context to connect old and new concerns with what linguistic expertise offers to the well-being of human and non-human forms of life. We pursue how linguists can contribute to managing a transition to new eco-civilizations. Looking beyond discourse, we appeal to how activity based on scientific, social and ethical concerns draws on linguistic expertise and skill. In so doing, we open up a transdisciplinary domain that aims to stem biological degradation and nurture a new concern for sustaining life on earth. Can linguists and other scholars contribute to the development of eco-civilization? The question links linguistic issues with Eastern and Western views of knowledge/ethics. In considering practical consequences, we hope to develop consilience around the following: 1. How do languages (especially threatened languages) shape well-being by drawing on a history of interdependency between humans and their lived environments? a. How can discourse about the environment and ecological issues be used to develop harmonious living within the bio-ecology by, for example, replacing the stories that underpin globalised culture with new ones. 2. How can the ethical basis of human life and languaging be used to: a. Raise awareness of human interdependence with the living world?
b. Allow communities to harness the power of science while also recognizing its narrow epistemic limits? c. Pursue educational and communal ways of enhancing the well-being of local environments? We encourage submissions that address languaging and eco-civilizations from theoretical or empirical perspectives, or from those directed at community and educational practices aimed at re-establishing harmony within the bio-ecology. We seek participation from ecolinguistics, applied and general linguistics, ecological humanities, environmental science, economics, philosophy, cognitive science, semiotics, translation, communication, business, education and other related fields.
