Under the theme of “Paradigms and Doctrines of Petromodernity” international speakers, including lecturers from a wide range of universities, will grapple with the environmental and social consequences of the extraction and use of crude oil in the “True Oil” symposium. Crude oil has now found its way into almost every organism, whether through artificial fertilisers or microplastics, and is of terrifyingly colossal importance to humankind, as the ongoing oil wars attest. The symposium will comprise a number of talks on oil, its past and present, along with plastics, petrol, and today’s “petrochemical” society, plus an excursion to Wietze and Celle. Those interested can register for the free symposium up until 12 October 2018.

Material 2018

Nordic House, Reykjavík / IS
16.11.2018 – 16.11.2018
material.is 

Everyone would probably include wood, glass or paper in the category of material as a matter of course. But what about bits and bytes that may not be tangible, but are the basis for digital structures and systems? The Material conference will examine the raw material, its applications, areas of use, and tools. The topic is also examined against the background that today there is already a generation that has never experienced the world “offline” – just as many others may already be beginning to lose their connection to material in its physical definition. Speakers include leading scientists, designers, and web architects. If you do make your way to Reykjavík, you will not only receive plenty of food for thought, but you might also be able to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights that appear at this time of year.
