06 Apr CFP: Petrocultures24 / SOUTH

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Biennial conference series Petrocultures is coming to Perth, Western Australia, 11-13 November 2024.

Organised by members of the Energy Humanities Initiative at Curtin University, Petrocultures2024/SOUTH sees this international energy humanities community come to the southern hemisphere for the first time.

Via the theme of “Contested Energy Futures”, the conference will explore distances, struggles, visions, dynamics, flows, regulations, and resistances in the reproduction of petrocultures. The conference provides a platform for voices of the South—from Western Australia, the country’s eastern States, the Indian Ocean Rim Region and beyond—to discuss energy futures, their problematic pasts, and what inclusive and just trajectories toward transitions to renewables may look like.

This platform will allow us to merge scholarly contestations of possible and desirable energy futures with imaginative interventions from the creative arts, community activists, and First Nations’ yarns to prefigure more equitable and liveable energy outlooks.

Please join us for this critical anti-COP29 event and spread the word! Abstracts are due 31 March 2024.
