Bringing together the Environmental Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences in Australia
Wednesday 23 - Friday 25 November 2016
Holme Building, Science Road, University of Sydney
The Sixth Biennial Conference of the Association for the Study of Literature, Environment & Culture, Australia & New Zealand (ASLEC) in collaboration with the Sydney Environment Institute (SEI).
This conference will explore interdisciplinary work within the Environmental Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences in Australia on the Anthropocene theme of global and local environmental changes and impacts.
We also propose to form a new Society of Australian Environmental Social Sciences and Humanities (SAESSH) to foster environmental collaborations, analyses and policies. As both an academic and an activist body, the society will work to translate research into practical use for engaging with environmental challenges shared by academics, publics and policy makers alike.
