Anthropocene Campus MelbourneDates: 3-6 September 2018Location: Deakin
Downtown and other venues, Melbourne, Australia

Hosted by Deakin University’s Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and
Globalisation <http://www.deakin.edu.au/adi> and Deakin Science and Society
Network <https://blogs.deakin.edu.au/science-and-society-network/> in
partnership with the University of New South Wales Faculty of Arts and
Social Sciences <https://www.arts.unsw.edu.au/> and Centro de Investigación
para la Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres <http://cigiden.cl/en/> (CIGIDEN)
and with support from the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the Max Planck
Institute for the History of Science.

Debates over the past decade about the existence and start date of ‘the
Anthropocene’ – or, the age of the human – have provided an important
prompt for academics, artists and others to critically reconsider how
knowledge is produced and reproduced. What forms of critique,
knowledge-making and collaboration are needed to meet the challenges we now
face? Building on the success of other campuses in Berlin,

Philadelphia
<http://drexel.edu/coas/news-events/events-calendar/details/?eid=14467&iid=44259>
and
elsewhere, Melbourne will be the stage for an Anthropocene Campus in 2018
following the meeting of the Society for Social Studies of Science
<https://4s2018sydney.org/> (4S) in Sydney on 29 August–1 September 2018.
Across the four days of ACM18 participants will engage in a range of
lectures, field trips, and workshops in Melbourne and the wider area
exploring the theme of ‘The Elemental’.

Applications to participate in ACM18 will open in early 2018. PhD
candidates, Humanities, Arts and Social Science scholars at all levels, as
well as artists, physical scientists, engineers, and other practitioners,
will be encouraged to apply. For now, sign up for updates and news about
