Critical Encounters: Untangling the Anthropocene.
Critical Encounters offers an opportunity to untangle ideas & create more questions. This afternoon encounter brings together critical thinkers to collaborate with participants in a re- calibration of ourselves within the ecosphere. Using the Biotic Potential methodology, this is an opportunity to immerse within contemporary philosophical and ecological thought.

Speakers include:

Dr Melissa Neave is an environmental geographer with experience in natural resource management and a particular interest in water resources. Her research spans the social and physical sciences and seeks to find solutions to natural resource problems at scales ranging from the local to the international. She is currently researching the urban heat island phenomenon, specifically considering how this phenomenon is manifested and how it can be mitigated using vegetation.

Dr Scott Rayburg is a fluvial geomorphologist and hydrologist with expertise in catchment management, environmental flows, hydrologic and hydraulic modelling, GIS, remote sensing and data analysis. Scott’s research focuses on diversity and complexity in physical systems and on applying multidisciplinary approaches (including physical, biological and social aspects) to solving scientific and natural resource management problems. He is currently a senior lecturer at Swinburne University.

Sarita Gálvez is an educator, physiotherapist and PhD candidate in Education at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. She is interested in exploring embodied learning from a post-anthropocentric perspective. Her current research methods have emerged from the intersection between Andean epistemologies and Feminist Materialisms.

Facilitated by:

Aviva Reed is an interdisciplinary visual ecologist. Her practice explores scientific theories, particularly concepts associated with evolution and the ecological imagination. Her work aims to explore time and scale using storytelling and visual aids to communicate complex scientific ideas.

Tea & Biscuits provided.
