Plotting the Crisis: Ecologies, Commodities and the Arts

Speaking to CVAC’s “Environments” theme, Kerstin Oloff (School of Modern Languages and Cultures, Durham) has organized a one-day workshop to be held at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Durham on 24 May 2014 on ‘Plotting the Crisis: Ecologies, Commodities and the Arts’.

Speakers include Jason Moore (Binghamton), Sharae Deckard (UCD), Treasa DeLoughrey (UCD) and Janet Stewart (Durham).

The workshop, which has been organized with the support of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Durham University, the Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience, Durham University, and the University of Warwick’s Global Research Priorities, seeks to interrogate the concept of the ‘crisis’ by setting it in the context of thinking about capitalism as ‘world-ecology’.
