A series of research seminars organized during the academic year 2019-2020 on the theme of "Excavating the Anthropocene". This programme is supported through the IAS Award with an aim of establishing Environmental Humanities as a new field of cross-disciplinary research at Warwick.
This research series engages participants from several fields of humanities to bring critical humanist perspectives to environmental research. The humanities, as a body of disciplines concerned with human culture, bring indispensable critical frameworks to an unfolding crisis born out of class, cultural and species interaction and conflict. In particular, the humanities can offer crucial excavation of assumptions at work inside the Anthropocene, as it develops as a geohistorical and world-ecological rubric, and potentially as a program, for global environmental consciousness.
Denial of ecological urgency can be attributed to resistance from vested interests as well as to challenges inherent to ecological communication, including difficulty conceiving the scale of "Anthropocene". To address these challenges, over the course of each term a series of seminars will treat a different aspect of "Excavating the Anthropocene": "Visualising the Anthropocene" (Term 1), "Sounding the Anthropocene" (Term 2), "Conceptualising the Anthropocene" (Term 3).

Call for Papers for Ex-Historia Mini Conference
“Populism: past, present, and future”
19th December 2019, 14:00-17:00
Digital Humanities Building, University of Exeter
Globally, populism is on the rise, both amongst right- and left-wing politicians. An ideology that focuses on the segregation between the “pure people” and the “corrupt elite”, it is dramatically disrupting the political sphere across the world, including Europe, Latin America, and the United States. However, this is not a recent phenomenon; even though there has been a marked increase in populism since the late-2000s, its roots can be traced back to late nineteenth century movements in the United States and the Russian Empire.
Ex-Historia will be hosting a mini-conference on 19th December 2019 on the theme of populism, with a keynote speech by Emeritus Professor of Politics at the University of Bath, Roger Eatwell, who has recently written National Populism: the Revolt against Liberal Democracy with Matthew Goodwin.
To complement Eatwell’s keynote, Ex-Historia is looking for six postgraduate panellists to present more generally on the theme of populism. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Origins of populism
- Definitions of populism
- Links between democracy and populism
- Links between authoritarianism and populism
- Historical examples of populism
- Contemporary manifestations of populism.

Museological Review invites authors to submit abstracts for Issue 24, which will reflect on and respond to how museums and art galleries are adding to current conversations through their exhibitions, programmes and projects and how this challenges the definition of a museum and its relation to the public. Should museums participate and be involved in the debate around social justice, global equality and wellbeing, as the new definition proposes?
In this regard, Museological Review is interested in submissions which consider how museums and art galleries are responding to and communicating themes including but not limited to the following:
- Community-based programmes and projects
- Crisis of democracy
- Equal rights
- Future of Europe after Brexit
- Global warming and climate change
- Human dignity and wellbeing
- Migrant crisis
- Museums in time of austerity
- Social justice
- Technology and big data
Submissions are invited in the form of academic articles, exhibition/book reviews and visual contributions from graduated students (MA and PhD), current PhD candidates, early-career researchers and museum practitioners. In light of the debate of the new definition of what is a museum, Issue 24 will contribute to the discussion by including a section where researchers and museum practitioners submit their own definition (no more than 300 words) of what they believe a museum is.
The deadline for submissions and abstracts/proposals is Monday 3rd November 2019, 17.00 GMT. Submissions and enquiries should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
