Call for Panellists: Queering Environmental Justice through Methods of
Art and Activism.
Annual International Conference.
Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers
Conveners: Martin Zebracki & Maria Rovisco, University of Leeds
Session format: In-person
Proposed date: 31 August 2023
We invite expressions of interest from colleagues at all career stages
and from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to participate in our proposed
panel. The panel aims to explore the potential of methods of art and
activism, or ‘artivism’, in examining the relationship between social
inequality and environmental justice.
We are particularly interested in investigating the roles of artivism in
addressing the impact of severe and sudden environmental changes on
marginalised communities, with a focus on gender and sexual minorities.
The panel aims to initiate a dialogue between scholars working with
diverse epistemologies and geographical contexts, and we especially
welcome contributions focusing on Global South communities.
Panellists will be requested to submit a position statement in advance
of the panel, to facilitate critical exchange and discussion of
innovative approaches, opportunities, as well as challenges related to
the use of artivist methods.
We are keen to discuss any plans for outputs with the participants
following the event.
By 17 March, please submit your expression of interest via this form
This activity is part of the project ARISE: Artivism for Environmental
