Aarhus U Postdoc: Intellectual History of Global Inequality: Argentina (Denmark)

PostdocsOne-Year Postdoc Position: An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015: Argentina, School of Culture and Society, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark. Deadline: 26 July 2020.

The School of Culture and Society at Aarhus University invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in the history of ideas. The position is full-time, and is available from 1 February 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position will be part of the project ‘An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015’.

The project will investigate the historical relationship between location and the intellectual history of inequality. The research objects of this study are concepts, theories and ‘languages’ relating to international economic inequality from 1960 to 2015. The approach is historical-contextualist and combines conceptual and intellectual history, focusing upon contributions to academic and public debates by public intellectuals, especially economists, sociologists, historians and philosophers. Furthermore, the approach is comparative: it will compare the thought of Northern (primarily American), Indian, African (primarily Ghanaian) and South American (primarily Argentinian) public intellectuals. The project is thus divided into four subprojects (with this position focusing on Argentina), each investigating a significant geographical area in the global discourse on economic inequality, enabling us to make new comparisons and trace connections in South-South as well as in North-South exchanges. The project will be an important contribution to the global turn in intellectual and conceptual history. The successful applicant will be responsible for the sub-project on Argentina. The postdoc will study key Argentinian intellectuals and the intellectual history of international and global economic inequality in Argentina.

CFP Technology, Knowledge and Society Conference (Buenos Aires)

Call for Papers
Twelfth International Conference on Technology and Society
The Technology and Society Conference will be held from 18-19 February 2016 at the Universidad de Buenos Aires in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We welcome submissions from a variety of disciplines and perspectives and encourage faculty and students to jointly submit proposals, discussing technology and society through one of the following themes:

Conference Themes
Technologies for Human Use
Technologies in Community
Technologies for Learning
Technologies for Common Knowledge

2016 Special Focus: Ideas, Objects, Waste: Critically Approaching The Life Cycle of Technologies in the Age of the Anthropocene
Technologies have life cycles. They begin as ideas reverberating within normative contexts of innovation and progress. These ideas then materialize as objects. This materiality connects the object to epochs of production and the natural world: metals, bio-matter and other natural resources. Finally, as their life cycle comes to a close, these objects become waste. In this final stage, another set of material impacts comes into view: their disposal as waste or our reuse of these objects for similar or different purposes. The increasing speed of this life cycle stimulates a ‘what is to be done?’ reflexivity that pervades the whole cycle. What does pace of this life cycle today reveal about us as individuals, communities or societies?

Parallel to our annual thematic streams, the Special Focus for the 12th Technology Knowledge and Society Conference – “Ideas, Objects, Waste: Critically Approaching The Life Cycle of Technologies in the Age of the Anthropocene” – will be to analyze the life cycle of technology in the context of our current ecological condition, in an era that has been coined the age of the Anthropocene. To be precise: how do we use findings of the impacts human action on the environment as an evaluative criterion assessing the ideas, objects and waste of technological developments? In turn, how can such questioning shape our understanding of the social impact of technologies, and the ideals of human needs and community interests manifest in the developmental direction and objects of technologies?

Proposal Submissions and Deadlines
The current review period closing date for the latest round of submissions to the Call for Papers (a title and short abstract) is 18 March 2015*. Please visit the conference website for more information on submitting your proposal, future deadlines, and registering for the conference.
