BALTEHUMS calls for fapers for the Second Baltic Conference on the Environmental Humanities and Social Sciences (BALTEHUMS II)
BALTEHUMS calls for presentations, sessions and interventions that focus on environment in humanities, arts and social sciences at large, including topics such as food, resources, landscape, pollution, water, recycling, climate change, power plants, representation of nature, environment and social movements, human-animal interaction, environmental ethics etc. Under ‘environment’ they do not mean only ‘nature’, but also built environment and cultural and industrial spaces linked to non-human nature and natural resources at large.
The conference welcomes contributions from all scholars who work on environmental humanities, arts and social sciences of the Baltic region, independently of where they live and work. We also welcome those scholars who reside in the Baltics and are interested in the field but whose work focusses on some other geographic location.
BALTEHUMS welcome contributions in all recognised academic formats (20 min presentations; posters, roundtables) but are also open to suggestions for newer, more dynamic formats and artistic interventions.
