This will be of interest to early career researchers in human-caused environmental change.

From November 14-22, 2014 the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) will host the ANTHROPOCENE CAMPUS, a multi-disciplinary setting to probe an exemplary
ANTHROPOCENE CURRICULUM for higher education that is designed to adequately address the challenges posed by a new �geological age of humankind.�

Participants will be given the opportunity to participate in a wide range of seminars and public presentations that have been developed by a group of 27 renowned university teachers from science, the humanities, arts and design around the world. The goal of the campus is to explore new ways of seeing, understanding, and engaging with a world that is marked by an environmental crisis that challenges existing concepts of knowledge production and pedagogic creativity alike.

At the ANTHOPOCENE CAMPUS an international group of 100 young researchers from both academia and research-oriented institutions as well as actors and experts from civil society, politics, and the arts will be actively involved in a temporary co-learning space at HKW. The aim is to foster an integrated approach to transdisciplinary Anthropocene research and knowledge. An ANTHROPOCENE COURSEBOOK developed from the pre- and postwork of the nine-day event will provide a starting point for continued future intellectual exchange.
We would be very grateful if you could circulate the attached call for applications among your colleagues and students and post it at your institution.
The application deadline is April 30, 2014. More information on the overall project, instructors, seminar contents, selection criteria and application procedures can be found at anthropocene-curriculum.org
