Situating the ‘Global’ in Contemporary Humanities
Conference 17 - 19 October 2019
School of Arts and Humanities, HSE St Petersburg
St Petersburg, Promyshlennaya 17, room 412

The concept of the ‘global’ gained currency since the 1980s in the emergent paradigms of global history and the anthropology of globalisation, and the critique of comparative perspectives in area studies and literary scholarship. How is the global as a matter of academic concern interlinked with the globalisation after the end of the Cold War and more recent geopolitical, and ecological realities — as well as with the globalisation of the humanities and social sciences themselves? What are some of the contours of global networks, cultural flows and hierarchies which we explore — and in which we are also implicated as scholars, authors and teachers? How do academics react to the globalisation of politics of knowledge in different countries and regions? Discussing these issues is the goal of the first annual conference of the School of Arts and Humanities of the HSE St Petersburg.

Conference highlights include:
Key note address “The Human Touch: Why the Humanities are Needed for Global Environmental Change, and How” by Poul Holm (Trinity College, Dublin), a pioneer in environmental history of the oceans, the director of the Trinity Centre for Environmental Humanities <https://www.tcd.ie/tceh/> and Vice-Chair of the Humanities of Academia Europea.
Panels and round table discussions on the global history of empires, environmental humanities, digital art, Marr’s linguistics and anthropological museums.
Roundtable on globalisation of academic knowledge by editors of the journals American Ethnologist, Social Anthropology/Anthropologie Sociale, Ab Imperio and Laboratorium, followed by the presentation of the new editorial team of the Social Anthropology/Anthropologie Sociale, the journal of the European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) and their first issue of this journal. 
Screening of “Cloudberries” (2019, 22 min) film by Ruth Maclennan (Official Selection BFI London Film Festival 2019 - Experimenta Strand - World premiere)
