The Consortium for Critical Island Studies invites interested faculty, professionals, students, and independent researchers to its inaugural conference.
Critical Island Studies: The Islandic, Archipelagic, and Oceanic
The conference explores established and emerging issues, theories, methodologies, and practices in critical island studies. Focusing on concepts of the islandic, archipelagic, and oceanic, the conference accounts for the field's interdisciplinary historical formation, while examining its manifold scholarly and creative practices and possibilities within and across Asia. The conference will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences; topics include, but are not limited to, islandscapes, seascapes, and littorals; borders and contact zones; international, national, imperial, regional, cultural and language formations; and bio- and cultural diversity.
