Description: The longevity and adaptability of historical extractivist and colonialist logics underpin neo-extractivist development in all corners of the world. At the same time, artists and communities are presenting unique challenges to the persistence of these extractivist histories while working towards possibilities for the future. Hosted by the UCD Humanities Institute, this five-day interdisciplinary symposium examines the role of the arts and humanities in critical responses to extractivism across a range of periods and locations. Combining roundtable plenaries and paper panels with artistic engagements and site studies that connect the academic discussions with previously excavated landscapes, the symposium presents community engagements focused on (post-) extractivist futures and seeks to generate new modes of analyses to investigate established discourses of extractivism.
