Hinterlands

A Project in the Rural, Literary and Environmental Humanities

Hosted by the ASCA Amsterdam and WISER, 3-4 June 2021, online

The Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA) and WISER are co-convening an interdisciplinary online symposium on Hinterlands. The symposium is being organized as part of the ERC-Funded Rural Imaginations project at ASCA.  The intellectual rationale for the focus on Hinterlands can be found attached.

We warmly invite contributions to this interdisciplinary project. If you are interested in participating, please send a title, an abstract of 250-300 words, and a short bio (under 100 words) to Hanneke Stuit at h.h.stuit@uva.nl by 30th April 2021. If your abstract is selected, we will ask you to present your ideas in a 7-minute video or audio recording, to be submitted before the online symposium. At the symposium, the recordings will be discussed in preparation for the journal and book publications. The full contributions should be approximately 6,000 words and are due on November 1, 2021. We invite contributions from all disciplines and across all places, with a strong interest in multidisciplinary approaches.
