Konference Encountering Non-Humans: On Methodologies for the Post-Anthropocene
- posluchárna B2.43, Arna Nováka 1, Brno / online (Zoom)
Conference Encountering Non-Humans: On Methodologies for the Post-Anthropocene aims to discuss methodological aspects of non-human, more-than-human and other others from interdisciplinary perspectives, ranging from (post-)humanities, social studies and live sciences research to the public sphere and artistic practice, while situating the research and practices to current socio-economical contexts and tackling the wicked problems of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. First day of the conference will be dedicated to speakers, workshops will take place on the second day.
In the literature, we often encounter an emphasis or insistence on the end of anthropocentrism, but too often only in theoretical terms without methodological frameworks and practical examples (Morton 2017). Under the term "non-human actors" we can imagine animals, artificial intelligence, bacteria, smart technologies, natural resources, and multiple others. The topic is reflected in academic discourse in the context of contemporary issues and future challenges such as climate collapse, the geopolitical crisis, or the Internet of Things.
Conference takes place on 26-27 November 2022 in Brno, Czech Republic and online and will be held in English.
This conference is supported by Ministry of Culture Czech Republic and Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University.
