What is IPY
- Antarctic Visions: Cultural Perspectives on the Southern Continent
- 21.06.2010 - 23.06.2010
- University of Tasmania - Hobart, Australia
Following the success of the "Imagining Antarctica" conference at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand in September 2008, the University of Tasmania will host "Antarctic Visions," a second conference examining Antarctica from a cultural perspective. Drawing on the arts, social sciences and humanities, the conference will focus attention on the ways we perceive and represent the southernmost continent. Connections with other disciplines - particularly scientific disciplines - are encouraged, as are new approaches to familiar challenges, such as the whaling and climate change debates. While the primary focus of the conference is on the far south, papers which combine Antarctic and Arctic material are welcome. The conference coincides with the Hobart Midwinter Festival, which offers a rich selection of polar-related exhibitions, activities and presentations.
Papers of twenty minutes with ten-minute question times will be invited. Panel proposals are also welcome. At this time, we are giving you advanced notice of the conference. A call for papers, with links to a website, details of registration, abstract submission, etc, will be sent out within the next couple of months.
