The Third Biennial Conference of the Political Ecology Network (POLLEN20)
Contested Natures: Power, Possibility, Prefiguration
Brighton, United Kingdom
24-26 June 2020
In connection with 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 track two-fold. First, we aim to create a space within the conference for and by junior researchers and activists from a broad range of disciplines and backgrounds who are focused and working on a diverse range of topics on political ecology. Second, we aim to ‘unconference’ POLLEN 20 by introducing a ‘productively disruptive’ dynamic for the benefit of all attendees and participants.
At this time, our working group invites proposals and ideas from PhD and early career researchers for both formal and not-so-formal conference activities such as field trips, theatre and role plays, 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 by the 22nd November 2019 to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please limit proposals to between 300-500 words, and include a description of activities and how you think these will benefit postgraduate researchers and the broader POLLEN network.
