The Third Biennial Conference of the Political Ecology Network (POLLEN)
Contested Natures: Power, Possibility, Prefiguration
24 – 26 June 2020
As part of the upcoming Third Biennial conference of the Political Ecology Network in Brighton from 24-26 June 2020, a working group made up of postgraduate researchers at the University of Sussex and Brighton University are organizing a special track for PhD and early career researchers within the conference.
The goal of this special track two-fold. First, we aim to create a space within the conference organized for and by junior researchers and activists from diverse disciplines and backgrounds who are focused, working on or practicing any aspects of political ecology. Second, we aim to ‘unconference’ POLLEN 20 by introducing ‘productively disruptive’ dynamics for the benefit of all attendees and participants.
At this time, we invite proposals and ideas from PhD and early career researchers for both formal and not-so-formal conference activities. These can involve things like field trips, theatre and role plays, visual arts, masterclasses or dynamic interventions within and around the conference. If you have an idea that you would like to discuss in advance of submission, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
Please submit any ideas and proposals of 300-500 words by the 14th October 2019 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a description of your ideas or proposed activities and how you think these will benefit postgraduate researchers and the broader POLLEN network.
