We invite proposals for presentations to contribute to a virtual seminar series on ‘Heroes and Villains in the Anthropocene’ (Spring and Summer 2021). Organised as part of the Refiguring Conservation in/for ‘the Anthropocene’: The Global Lives of the Orangutan project (ERC Starting Grant no. 758494, https://globallivesoftheorangutan.org/) at Brunel University London, this series aims to bring together scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and at all stages of their career in an ongoing conversation that – we hope – will culminate in a writing workshop in Autumn 2021 (virtual or in person, depending on the conditions) and a joint publication afterwards. Presentations should last up to 40 minutes, and can take different formats (as long as they work virtually). Please submit an abstract of ~200 words by January 4th 2021 to Hannah Fair (email@example.com) and Viola Schreer (firstname.lastname@example.org). We expect decisions to be made by January 15th 2021.
