The 2nd Peaceful Coexistence Colloquium is organized by University of Lapland, in collaboration with a group of international scholars (see our webpages). The colloquium – that takes place in Pyhätunturi, Finnish Lapland – will be an intimate event, where we engage in creative ways of working and co-exist with the Lappish nature. We wish to bring together researchers from various disciplines united by the interest in developing new and radical ways for thinking of and acting in the Anthropocene, and by willingness to share their findings and thoughts. We welcome conceptual, methodological, empirical and artistic contributions related to the colloquium theme.
