Environmental Arts and Humanities Initiative

The Environmental arts and Humanities Initiative aims to create a common platform for academic researchers, artists, and ecological activists creatively negotiating planetary issues at the intersection between scientific and humanities-based approaches to the environment. Based at Central European University and co-founded by Maja and Reuben Fowkes, its programme includes conferences, workshops, film screenings, presentations and a team-taught Environmental Arts and Humanities course. These have included the conference Vegetal Mediations: Plant Agency in Contemporary Art and Environmental Humanities (May 2017), the symposium on  Reflexive Ecologies of Post-Internet Art (February 2018), and Feral Incursions (May 2018),  an experimental workshop exploring the polyvalent theoretical and practical facets of the feral through art, politics and ecology.
