UPCOMING EVENTS AFTER THE RECESS
 
Writing Letters to brExtraterrestrials

Writing Letters to
Extraterrestrials


Symposium, 22-24 Sep 2021

To be extra-terrestrial, or extra-earth, might imply excess or spillover from the earthly, being expelled from Terra, or the desire to leave the Earth altogether. It might invoke fears or excitement of greeting an alien other to Earth, or perhaps instead reveal fantasies of being able to leave a damaged Earth behind and become oneself extra-terrestrial.

Organized by Alison Sperling
An ICI Event organized in cooperation with TU Berlin ZIFG and IPODI Initiative, CoFutures/Science Fictionality at the University of Oslo, and the American Studies Center at the University of Warsaw.

Please note: The number of participants at the ICI Berlin is limited. Registration opens on 13 Sep 2021.

Critical Inflections on (Neo)Extractivism in Latin America

Symposium, 27-28 Sep 2021

Extraction has been historically associated with the removal of underground materials, whereas extractivism is a broader notion connoting a primarily white, colonial mode of accumulation of the West. For most Latin American countries, their natural wealth became their curse, permeating both the material and the symbolic realms. 

Organized by Delfina Cabrera, Ariadne Collins, and Marlon Miguel in collaboration with materia – DLCL Focal Group (Stanford University)

Please note: The number of participants at the ICI Berlin is limited. Registration opens on 13 Sep 2021.
