International Symposium on “Affective Anthropocene: Contextualizing Feelings and Environments under Climate Change”
(in mixed mode)

• In what ways can affectivity overcome or draw upon national, racial, sexual, generational and species boundaries in the age of climate change? 


• How is the formation of new identities or reassertion of old ones related to affectivity and to what extent can affective ecologies help confront the environmental challenges? 


• What kinds of specific space or geographical location, whether in global, regional, national or local scale, can enhance or subside affectivity in the Anthropocene? 


• How does the ecological civilization in China and beyond accommodate the complex emotions that accompany life in the Anthropocene?
