COUNTER NATURES

An upcoming symposium in November 2009 at Uppsala University

“Counter Natures” is a major interdisciplinary symposium featuring papers by 30 researchers from 10 countries collectively representing more than a dozen academic disciplines. The symposium seeks to initiate a fruitful series of cross-disciplinary conversations that may help to suggest renewed or innovative theorizations of nature, the most abiding motif of art and literature and the most fundamental of scientific and philosophical concepts.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Lawrence Buell (Harvard
University), Ursula Heise (Stanford University), David Nye (University
of Southern Denmark, Odense) and Sverker Sörlin (KTH: The Royal
Institute of Technology).
