PhD Symposium on Precarity Possibilities for Humans and Things
The PhD Students in Asian and African Studies of the Department of Asian and North African Studies at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice are glad to present their doctoral symposium "Precarity: Possibilities for Humans and Things", to be held on March 29th-30th 2023 in Venice.
In this symposium, we would like to discuss the diverse forms in which ‘precarity’ emerges as possibilities to conceptualise alternative modes of co-existence. In mutual interaction with both humans and things, across times and spaces.
We invite young scholars, especially PhD candidates, post-doc, and early career researchers, from all disciplines, to submit abstracts that explore the presence of precarity in a range of dimensions – experienced, lived and imagined. Interdisciplinary and boundary-crossing approaches are encouraged.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
- marginalizations in precarity
- (im)materialities in precarity
- heritages in precarity
- queernesses in precarity
- environments in precarity
- lifestyles in precarity
