The full programme for the Monsoon [+ other] Waters Symposium is now available and booking is now open on the Eventbrite:
This is the second in a series of symposia convened by the Monsoon Assemblages project led by Professor Lindsay Bremner. The two-day event will comprise inter-disciplinary panels, keynote addresses and an exhibition.
It will bring together established and young scholars and practitioners from a range of disciplines, knowledge systems and practices to engage in conversations about the ontologies, epistemologies, histories, politics, practices and spatialities of monsoon waters.
Confirmed key note speakers at the symposium are:
- Anuradha Mathur and Dilip da Cunha: landscape architects based in Philadelphia, USA and Bangalore, India, whose work is focused on how water is conceptualised and visualised in ways that lead to conditions of its excess and scarcity, and the opportunities that its ubiquity offers for new visualizations of terrain and resilience through design.
- Kirsten Blinkenberg Hastrup: environmental anthropologist based in Copenhagen, Denmark, whose work deals with social responses to climate change across the globe, currently centered in the Thule Area, NW Greenland.
When: 12th and 13th April 2018
Where: Room M416, University of Westminster, 35 Marylebone Road, London, NW1 5LS
