Call for Abstracts:
Monsoon Assembly Air

Contributions are invited to Monsoon Assembly Air, the first of three annual symposia to be convened by Monsoon Assemblages, ERC Starting Grant no. 679873 at the University of Westminster in London.

Monsoon Assembly Air will interrogate questions of monsoon atmospheres, depressions, winds, cyclones, clouds, onsets, temporalities and forecasts; of birds, seed dispersal, dust, aerosols and fragrances; of monsoon sounds and music; of monsoon wind driven trading systems; of monsoons on the air and in the media; of the many systems and technologies through which knowledge of monsoon air is produced – religious, cultural, political, scientific, everyday. We also wish to address questions of urban monsoon airs - heat islands, the micro-politics of life performed by air, bodily airs, air-conditioning, air-pollution, air-ports and air architecture.
