Thinking Mountains

Banff, Alberta, Canada
From: 02.10.2018 to: 05.10.2018

Thinking Mountains 2018 will bring researchers, students and teachers from across scholarly disciplines into dialogue with activists, artists, Indigenous leaders and community members, all of whom share a commitment to global mountain sustainability and to the betterment of mountain peoples, places and activities.

This will be the third interdisciplinary Thinking Mountains gathering. Thinking Mountains 2012 took place at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. Thinking Mountains 2015 was held in Jasper, Alberta. Thinking Mountains 2018 – hosted by the University of Alberta, in conjunction with the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity, and in association with our many academic and community partners – will be housed at the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity, in Banff, Alberta, Canada on 2-5 October. The international meeting will be devoted to the possibilities entailed in thinking not just within but across the boundaries of disciplinary scholarship, and to the power of understanding that can arise from the combination of new research findings with traditional orders of knowledge.
