ART, RELIGION, AND THE ANTHROPOCENE: A workshop at NUS, 3-5 August 2016
There will be a workshop at the National University of Singapore on Art, Religion, and the Anthropocene during the first week of August. It will be about art (fiction, art, popular culture) in which religion and concerns about or representations of the anthropocene come together. Brent Plate and Luis Vivanco are coming, as is Lisa Sideris. I’m hoping Bron Taylor will be able to come. Our plan is to publish our final essays in the special issue of a journal, so your presentation would have to be for work that is not already spoken for. At the workshop we will have an hour each to present on our project, and everyone will share drafts in the 3000 word neighborhood. We will then exchange drafts, revise, and produce essays for the special issue (or book, if that seems the better outcome). I have edited/co-edited ten books and two special issues, so I know the ropes and will not let the project founder.
There are a few open slots in our program. If you wish to attend or participate as a presenter, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me a sense of how you would like to participate. If you would like to present your work, please send a proposal that includes a title, an abstract of 75-100 words, and a brief academic bio. I will need this no later than 5 July 2016.
It may be possible to cover hotel expenses for presenters, but I won’t be certain about this for another week or two. Please let me know right away if you have any questions.
