FEVERISH WORLD is a 3-day symposium and art event organized by the UVM Ecoculturelab scheduled for October 19-23, 2018. Through a series of presentations, performances and art installations, the symposiumexplores the question, "How can we draw on the creative imagination of the arts, the wisdom and critical insight of the humanities, and the know-how and know-what of science and technology to develop practices for collective coexistence and even flourishing in the climate-destabilized world of our likely future?" FEVERISH WORLD is seeking submissions from artists, scholars, scientists, designers, engineers, and activists in two categories to contribute to the symposium:

(1) TEXTWORKS: Propositions for a Feverish World
We seek written contributions that report on (or propose) practical or scholarly efforts to bridge between the arts and humanities and the sciences, technology, engineering, and/or design in response to issues of public concern (such as climate change and the refugee crisis). Accepted proposals must be followed by a written contribution of no more than 3000 words, to be shared electronically with registered participants by October 12. Participants will then have five minutes to summarize their written contribution at a two-hour roundtable on Monday morning, October 22, 2018. Half of the roundtable duration will consist of moderated discussion.
TextWorks proposals are due by August 1, 2018 (proposals may be accepted beyond that date if program space is available). Proposals should include the following information:

  • name(s) and affiliation(s) of presenter/contributor(s);
  • title of presentation;
  • 150-300 word abstract, including scope of the work presented, disciplinary approach or strategy, and implications for the broader questions of the symposium.

(2) TENTWORKS: Shelters for a Feverish World
We seek creative proposals for conceptual, textu(r)al, expressive, and/or experiential works to be housed with/in one (or more) of the roughly 8’x8’x8’ triangular tents making up the symposium’s “Tent CityCommons” (see images below). Tents may be indoor or outdoor, and will be located at the University of Vermont campus and in key locations in and around Burlington. Proposed works could be of any format provided that they work in concert with the TentWorks spaces, are technically feasible (with limited logistical support), and either remain in place for much or all of the Symposium (Saturday through Monday) or be performed during that time period; and that they somehow respond — whether directly, laterally, diffusely, or circuitously — to the general themes of the symposium.
TentWorks proposals are due by August 1, 2018 (proposals may be considered beyond that date if space is available).
