Call for papers

This conference seeks to tackle these questions not only by theorizing solidarity in the era of digitalization but also suggesting new ways of academic exchanges through its format. Arranging this event in digital space, the organizers attempt to counter some of the environmentally detrimental consequences of neoliberal capitalism and incite awareness of the ways we can scale down and use less resources. Simultaneously, this conference seeks to challenge the techno-fix legacy of sustainability discourse by questioning the idea of the digital as the solution to climate crisis.

Conference format

Extended abstracts should be submitted four weeks before the conference (September 2, 2020). Two weeks before the conference (September 16, 2020), the extended abstracts will be uploaded to the online platform to receive feedback from conference participants.The conference organizers will seek to take into account different time zones when preparing the program. Should sessions be scheduled in late evenings or early mornings, we ask for your understanding. Due to the explorative and online format of the conference, there is a limited number of places available. Acceptance letters will be sent out in mid-June.
