International and interdisciplinary conference at TU Dresden | November 9-12, 2022

This conference is dedicated to interdisciplinary dialogues between the environmental humanities and the boundary-defying work of the late philosopher of science Michel Serres. Committed to the incessant circulations between nature and culture, the global and the local, the natural sciences and the humanities, Michel Serres’ books provide an evocative cartography for rethinking the relations among humans, environments, technology, and knowledge, especially in times of eco-systemic disruption and uncertainty. This conference extends an invitation to think beyond and with Serres in relation to disciplines and fields that include media studies, design, literature, history, classics, sociology, philosophy, and psychology.

This event is hosted by Jun.-Prof. Dr. Moritz Ingwersen (North American Literature and Future Studies, TU Dresden) in collaboration with Beate Ochsner (University of Konstanz). Keynotes include Vera Bühlmann (TU Vienna), Timothy Barker (Glasgow University), Paul Carter (RMIT Melbourne), Jeffrey J. Cohen (Arizona State University), William Paulson (University of Michigan), Stephanie Posthumus (McGill University), and Julian Yates (University of Delaware). Artist’s reading and performance by Rivers Solomon and Ghostpoet. Guest are welcome. If you would like to attend, please register by sending an email to More information and program available at
