CfP: Addressing Contemporary Politics and Gender in the Andes - ANDINXS

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 10:35

In the context of ongoing crises in Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, Chile and Bolivia, as well as the rise of right-wing and populist movements across the region, ANDINXS is a timely workshop addressing the increasingly contested relationship between politics and gender in the Andes. Women’s, feminist, and LGBTQ+ movements have been central in recent uprisings, but their role has often gone unnoticed. Beyond recent movements, in looking at intersections of politics and gender in the Andes we hope to disrupt narratives about contemporary Andean politics.

CfP: FeltrinelliCamp 2020. Transformative economies: from circular economy to green new deal

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 10:20

Nell’arco degli ultimi 10 anni, il nostro sistema economico è stato incentrato su un approccio industriale che segue la regola “estrazione-produzione-consumo”, contrario a qualunque criterio di efficienza e di sostenibilità. L’Economia Circolare e, più in generale, le economie trasformative, considerano invece un approccio meno lineare, meno devoto al consumo e allo spreco, più spostato verso criteri di equità, sostenibilità ed efficienza nell’uso del capitale naturale, sociale ed economico.
