Undisciplined Environments: International Conference of ENTITLE

Date: March 14, 2016

The European Network of Political Ecology (ENTITLE) will hold its international conference in March in Stockholm, Sweden, called "Undisciplined Environments." The five-day event will explore the roles of power and conflict in socio-ecological change and how an "undisciplined" approach may help researchers to tackle important questions facing society. The organisers write:

Most of socially-relevant environmental research takes place within isolated disciplinary silos and has a disciplinary orientation. Questions are framed in relation to scholarly traditions, not in terms of the structure of the problems and the conflicts at hand, which transcend conventional departmentalization. However, as we live in undisciplined environments, we need undisciplined thinking.

The event is co-organised by the Center for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra and the Environmental Humanities Laboratory of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. The event will include plenary and panel sessions and invites a range of contributions, including photo and graffiti exhibits, live performances and films.

Undisciplined Environments will run from March 20 to 24. You can find more information about this conference here.
