Early Career Analytical Study Space
The purpose of the early career strand is to generate a relaxed space where early career scholars can chat about and explore the many different ways in which islands and islanders are being thought about in broader Anthropocene debates and literatures. Thus, we critically ‘stand back’ from and analyse cross-cutting and discernible patterns of thought – analytical ways of thinking about islands and islanders which can be drawn out, traced, or mapped from Anthropocene debates and literatures.
We use the term ‘early career’ loosely and it is really up to people to decide if they feel they fall into this category themselves; but it could include MA students, PhD students, and those in the early years of their academic career.
The early career strand will initially meet 3 times per year on the same day as the Anthropocene Islands reading group. We also want to build up into holding sessions at conferences, workshops, and other activities.
Date of first meeting: Thursday, 24 June, 2021 at 6pm LONDON TIME (immediately after the ‘Anthropocene Islands’ reading group)
Please note: Before you attend, we strongly advise you to read the paper ‘Anthropocene Islands: there are only islands after the end of the world’, available here: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/2043820621997018. This paper will provide the focus of the meeting.
