Un-Greening Green: Materials – Metaphors – Media – Misunderstandings

The first interdisciplinary (OU)VERT symposium in Copenhagen is announced for May 19th 2017. Philosophers, artists, art historians, science and technology scholars, researchers from the natural and the medical sciences will confront positions inherent in the pervasive greenness trope and debate contradictions emerging with its migration across different cultures of knowledge.

As a collaboration between the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, the event will take place in the historical auditorium of the Medical Museion. It is supported by Goethe-Institut Dänemark, the Institut Français, the Department of Arts and Cultural StudiesMedical Museion, and the Section for Science Communication of the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic research (CBMR). Participation in the conference is free of charge. The event will be concluded by a special performance by the artist group HeHe at the CLICK Festival in Helsingør from 19 to 21 of May.
