We are very excited to announce that Elizabeth A. Povinelli will be delivering the keynote address for “EcoMaterialisms: Organizing Life and Matter.” Dr. Povinelli is Franz Boas Professor of Anthropology at Columbia University. Here is a description of her research interests:
“My writing has focused on developing a critical theory of late liberalism that would support an anthropology of the otherwise. My first two books examine the governance of the otherwise in late liberal settler colonies from the perspective of the politics of recognition. My last two books examined the same from the perspective of intimacy, embodiment, and narrative form. My ethnographic analysis is animated by a critical engagement with the traditions of American pragmatism and continental immanent theory.”
Furthermore, the deadline for individual and panel submissions has been extended to Friday, January 30, 2015.
