Emotions and Place

Postgraduate Advanced Training Seminar
Date: Wednesday 13 June 2018
Venue: University Club of Western Australia, The University of Western Australia
Enquiries: email Pam Bond at emotions@uwa.edu.au

  • Facilitated by Professor Susan Broomhall, ARC Future Fellow, ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, UWA.
  • Featuring participation by Professor Jeff Malpas, University of Tasmania.

This Postgraduate Advanced Training Seminar (PATS) will bring established scholars in this field together with postgraduates to explore issues between emotions, the non-human world, the environment, space and place.

Students and early career scholars will have the opportunity to discuss their own research.

This PATS is explicitly interdisciplinary and exploratory, and intended to allow students from many disciplines to encounter issues that transcend their own research field and to situate their own research in the interdisciplinary context.

Jeff Malpas is Distinguished Professor at the University of Tasmania and Visiting Distinguished Professor at La Trobe University. He was founder and, until 2005, Director of the University of Tasmania’s Centre for Applied Philosophy and Ethics. He is the author or editor of 21 books on topics in philosophy, art, architecture and geography. His work is grounded in post-Kantian thought, especially the hermeneutical and phenomenological traditions, as well as in analytic philosophy of language and mind. He is currently working on topics including the ethics of place, the failing character of governance, the materiality of memory, the topological character of hermeneutics, the place of art, and the relation between place, boundary and surface.
