CFP// Earth Sensations: Affects, sensibilities and attachments in an era of climate change

Circulated on behalf of Tobias Skiveren

13 – 14 October 2022

Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies, Denmark

Organisers: Iwona Janicka & Tobias Skiveren

The interdisciplinary conference aims to examine various sensations generated by natural environments in an era of climate change. It intends to explore how ecological mutation reconfigures the way we feel, sense, desire and what long term effects these changes have on mental health of individuals and communities. How do we sustain ourselves, mentally and emotionally, when our environments are destroyed? How do we compose more-than-human collectives that provide favourable conditions not only for survival but also for thriving for humans and nonhumans alike?
