The 12th European Society for Literature, Science and the Arts Conference is held in Copenhagen 13-16 June 2018 with the topic of GREEN. It is organized conjunctly by the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies, (OU)VERT, and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences/Medical Museion at the University of Copenhagen.

The final programme for download includes the general conference programme and the most updated detailed schedule for all 35 parallel sessions, as well as the conference poster.

Our confirmed keynote speakers are: Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing (University of California Santa Cruz & Aarhus University), Brigitte Luis Guillermo Baptiste (Alexander von Humboldt Biological Resources Research Institute Bogotá), Natasha Myers (York University Toronto), Olaf L. Müller (Humboldt University Berlin), Thomas Feuerstein (Artist, Vienna).

All keynote lectures are free events and open to everybody; for all parallel SLSAeu sessions registration is required. It is still possible to register on the conference site, we'll also offer daily registration rates. UCPH colleagues and students have now addition options to participate in the conference at a reduced rate.

Since the SLSAeu is committed to supporting young talents, a masterclass for PhD students and young postdocs is organized. Participants will get feedback from SLSA's keynote speakers in special work sessions. 29 candidates from 15 different countries have been selected.

The main conference site is University of Copenhagen’s South Campus. Our art events are staged at the Medical Museion, at Statens Museum for Kunst / The National Gallery of Denmark, and at Overgaden Institute of Contemporary Art.

The SLSAeu is the sister organisation of the international USA-based Society for Literature, Science and the Arts. It welcomes colleagues in the humanities, the social sciences, the arts, all fields of science, medicine, engineering, computer sciences as well as independent scholars, artists and scientists, and explicitly promotes inter- and trans-disciplinary exchange between literature, the arts, the natural sciences, medicine and technology.
