Vegetal Mediations: Plant Agency in Contemporary Art and Environmental Humanities

The CEU Campus
Friday, May 5, 2017, 3:00 pm – Saturday, May 6, 2017, 6:00 pm

This conference seeks to open an interdisciplinary discussion of the manifold role of plants as mediators, both as agents and enablers of intra-human interactions and in terms of non-human communication and exchange. It is organised by the Environmental Arts and Humanities Initiative and the Department of Gender Studies at Central European University in collaboration with Translocal Institute. The Environmental arts and Humanities Initiative aims to create a common platform for academic researchers, artists, and ecological activists creatively negotiating planetary issues at the intersection between scientific and humanities-based approaches to the environment.
