Room 20.04, Level 2, Charles Perkins Centre




How are extractive industries tethered to the military industrial complex? How are military technologies called upon to help address questions of species conservation or climate change? How do toxic legacies of war both foreclose and make possible the flourishing of different kinds of life? How does our understanding of “security” necessarily shift in the Anthropocene epoch, when any separation between human cultures and natural worlds is fundamentally untenable? As military legacies, infrastructures, and technologies continue to shape and reshape possibilities for shared planetary futures, we require new knowledges and new approaches for understanding the seeping of militarisms into everyday life, bodies, and environments.

Join us for this half-day seminar where University of Sydney academics across various disciplines will introduce their research in this emerging area of concern. We hope to connect with other researchers interested in these questions and cultivate a platform for future collaborations.

Convened by Dr Astrida Neimanis, Department of Gender and Cultural Studies
