Workshop 1

Nation in the Age of Environmental Crisis

July 17-18, 2015

 
The introductory workshop of our network will survey the challenges faced by national constructs and approaches against the background of global environmental problems such as climate change, water pollution, resource shortage, economic neo-imperialism, and environmental migration. It will discuss the role of cultural narratives in (de)constructing the nation and explore the environmental implications of previous attempts to think beyond the nation.

The workshop will begin on July 17, 9.00 am, and end on July 18, 3.00 pm. A detailed program will be available on this website by early July. All lectures and workshop sessions are free and open to the public.
