Mason is hosting the philoSOPHIA 15th Annual Conference "Entangled Ecologies: The Climate of Justice".
The conference will explore the complex linkages connecting climate change and environmental devastation to the entangled legacies of transatlantic slavery and settler colonialism, the histories and presents of anti-Black racism and violence against Indigenous peoples, and the interwoven patterns of exclusion and inequality structured around gender, sexuality, race, class, embodiment, and trans-species relations. The conference will foreground work that confronts these linkages so as to excavate possibilities for accountability, reparation and response-ability, strange intimacies, transformative justice, and liberation.
This event is funded by George Mason University's College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Department of Philosophy, Women and Gender Studies Program, Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy, and Center for Humanities Research, with generous co-sponsorship from the following Mason departments and programs: Cultural Studies, English, Global Affairs, History, Integrative Studies, Modern and Classical Languages, and Sociology and Anthropology.
