Blurry Bodies – Blurry Selves: Corporeality in the Anthropocene

WORKSHOP - 5 June 2024, 10 am - 7 pm CEST

The interdisciplinary workshop will explore the interplay between bodies, landscapes, and large-scale earthly transformations in literature, culture, and theory. In this way, we seek to examine the contemporary clash of scales as an ongoing negotiation of blurry bodies continuously changing into novel, yet to be theorized forms.

Hybrid event: in-person at the University of Vienna & online via Zoom
