Rethinking Sustainability: New Critical and Cultural Horizons

May 2-3, 2014

When thinking about ‘sustainability,’ it is common to assume a connection to environmental discourse and practice, rather than consideration of sustainability itself as a framework of maintenance, legacy, and change. But what exactly is ‘sustainability’? And what does it mean to practice sustainability? Is this a framework exclusively applicable to environmental practices and thought? Or can the concept of sustainability, or the question of what it means to sustain, be applied more broadly to the study of literature, anthropology or mathematics? How do epistemologies of sustainability vary across fields? In short, what do we sustain? What becomes normatively understood as deserving sustaining?
