The Global Extractivisms and Alternatives Initiative (EXALT) is a new international network of scholars, activists, and policymakers dedicated to collaboration and knowledge creation around the pressing crises stemming from extractivist policies and practices. At the EXALT Initiative 2020 conference we seek to draw together diverse critical analyses of the phenomena of global extractivisms and the myriad alternatives being actively pursued in both theory and practice. It is the intention of this conference to contribute to, expand, and deepen the concept of extractivism and the role of alternatives beyond the conventional usage connected to natural resources.
Please visit their webpage to submit an abstract for an oral presentation or a poster presentation. There is more information on our webpage about the submission requirements and further information about the thematic tracks. The conference also offers space for a variety of methods of making and talking about science. Therefore we welcome submissions of alternative ways of examining and discussing the conference themes, for example presentations that include participatory elements, creative, and/or artistic presentations.
