  Dear List Members,

***Apologies for Cross posting****

RAI 2020 CFP** for The Anthropology and Geography: Dialogues Past, Present
and Future Conference
June 4-7, 2020, Jointly organized by the British Academy, British Museum,
Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), SOAS University of London


*Panel Session*: Precarious Places: Shifting Ground in the Anthropocene


Short Abstract:
How are the ecological impacts of human activity exacerbating social
inequities? Critically re-evaluating the concept of the Anthropocene, this
panel centres on the theme of place-making given the destabilisation of
environments due to the impacts of human activity.

Long abstract:
How are the ecological impacts of human activity exacerbating social
inequities? The concept of the Anthropocene speaks to the destabilising of
the Earth's geological, climatological, and ecological systems by human
activities. One consequence of this destabilisation is the increasing
precarity of the spaces and places within which these activities occur and
of the people who take part in them. This panel calls for papers that speak
to this feedback loop, particularly the difficulties of making place in a
time when the locations and locales in which people live, work, rest, and
otherwise take part in everyday life are being disrupted by multiple
simultaneous climatological and ecological transformations, many of which
have the potential to be disastrous for human survivability. Situated
methodologically at an intersection of anthropology and geography, this
panel centres on the theme of place-making in the Anthropocene, including
through critical approaches which challenge the Anthropocene as an
unproblematic interpretive frame for understanding destabilising processes.
In particular, the assumption of human control over the Earth's systems
forecloses productive thinking about ongoing negotiations between humans
and non-humans in the places they cohabit. In what new ways does place come
to matter in the Anthropocene? What longer term processes are occluded
through the deployment of the term, Anthropocene? How long can places
persist given the multiplying threats associated with climate change? The
discussion will act as an entry point for thinking through these questions
and others, which will be accomplished through case studies focused on
human-environment interactions and place making among vulnerable
communities.

proposing author (but not any co-authors listed) will receive automated
email confirming receipt. If you do not receive this email, please first

lost; and if it is not, it means you need re-submit, as process went wrong
somewhere.
