CfP: The Coronavirus Pandemic: An Environmental Humanities Perspective

The Coronavirus Pandemic: An Environmental Humanities Perspective Keynote Speakers: Cymene Howe (Rice University) & Eben Kirksey (Deakin University) February 15-17, 2023.  University of Vienna.  Abstracts Due June 1, 2022 “The Coronavirus Pandemic: An Environmental Humanities Perspective,” a conference convened as part of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) project “Air and Environmental Health in the (Post-)COVID-19 World,” invites abstract submissions for consideration. This three-day on-site event will take place at the University of Vienna on February 15-17, 2023. The COVID-19 pandemic is identified as resulting from human-animal entanglement, or multispecies interactions between individuals and collective populations in proximity, and has since spread across borders and continents. With the encroachment of human populations on natural habitats a key driver for the spread of zoonotic disease, this conference identifies the coronavirus pandemic as a matter of concern beyond epidemio

CfP: Children in the Post-apocalypse, film and televsion

Audiences have long been fascinated with images of an imagined apocalypse since the first sci-fi films of the early 20th century. Humanity’s search for a utopian existence has always been accompanied by the fearful counter-imaginings of a monumental dystopian collapse of civilization, a vision that has risen in popularity in film and television during the past two decades. Today’s struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic brings to the surface social and cultural anxieties about the fate of humanity in the face of such an unexpected and uncontained enemy. The nature of apocalypse and its aftermath become questions that even the youngest members of society, our children, are positioned to consider in these days of the pandemic. Recent post-apocalyptic films and television like Black Crab (2022), A Quiet Place 1-3 (2018, 2021, 2023), Awake (2021), and Songbird (2021, a film about a deadlier form of Covid), add to the growing trend of post-apocalyptic films and television with significant child

CfP: 9th Conference for Integrated History and Philosophy of Science

Call for papers and posters The Committee for Integrated History and Philosophy of Science, together with the Ann Johnson Institute for Science, Technology, and Society, invites the submission of individual paper and poster abstracts for “&HPS9”, the 9th conference in the series Integrated History and Philosophy of Science. We seek contributions that genuinely integrate the historical and philosophical analysis of science (i.e., the physical sciences, life sciences, cognitive sciences, and social sciences), or discuss methodological issues surrounding the prospects and challenges of integrating history and philosophy of science. For information about Integrated History and Philosophy of Science and previous conferences, see http://integratedhps.org/en/ Please note that &HPS9 does not run parallel sessions. Hence, given the number of slots available, we regret that we cannot accept symposium submissions. &HPS9 will feature a Poster Forum as a place to share work that fits in
