websites:  and
Dear Tensions of Europe members,
‘Technology and Environment’ is the inspiring theme of the 7th Tensions of Europe Conference that will take place in Stockholm (Sweden), September 3-6, 22015. The conference will be organized by KTH, Royal Institute of Technology.
Confirmed key-note speakers are Amita Baviskar and Erik Swyngedouw.
Second call for papers
Attached you will find the second call for papers. Please be sure to distribute it to your colleagues and relevant national networks. Al information is available also on  
The 7th Tensions of Europe Conference will have as its main theme the interaction between technology and the environment. One way of understanding the environment is to think of it as nature appropriated by humankind through technological, scientific and representational means. From farming to space travel, we use technologies and natural resources to sustain our lives. Our use of technologies leaves traces behind in the form of altered environments. Changes at global historical and geological scales are accumulated as heritage and geophysical strata respectively. The intersection of technology and the environment can also be understood culturally or socially. We use technology in our understanding and appreciation of nature (religious, poetic or physical), in monitoring it, assessing it representing it. Further, technology can be a lens and a tool in shaping our relation to the environment. Technologies not only assist in shaping and transforming nature, they also assist us to perceive, observe, record and communicate natures and environments, including imaginative representations of techno-­natures in art, literature and film.
The conference also invites scholarship in the general themes of the Tensions of Europe network, such as trans-­border flows, common resources, conflicting interests, hidden integration and cultural practices.
We  not only invite traditional panel-sessions with a number of papers and   a  commentator, but  also  strongly  encourage    different    formats    and    new    ideas. These can concern anything from the archive to the woods, be big or small, structured or spontaneous. The programme committee will not prioritize between formats if the suggestions promise constructive, stimulating and engaging discussion.
Please submit your proposals as soon as possible and make sure to be present in Stockholm!
Best regards,
Jan Korsten
