5th Oxford Interdisciplinary Desert Conference – 22 to 24 April 2020

January 17, 2020 Off By Ariell

We are pleased to announce the upcoming Oxford Interdisciplinary Desert Conference scheduled for 22 to 24 April 2020 at the School of Geography and the Environment at the University of Oxford.

The Oxford Desert Conference brings together academics and non-academics who research, work and live across the world’s desert and semi-desert regions for two days of vibrant talks, presentations, panels and networking opportunities. It is a truly interdisciplinary event which allows social and physical scientists to exchange views, develop lasting collaborations and make a positive global impact.

For the 2020 Desert Conference, we encourage presentations, panel and roundtable proposals on issues related to social and physical sciences. Topics may include mobile pastoralism (including veterinary sciences), health, heritage, interdisciplinary methodologies, migration (mobility), conflict and development broadly conceived. Environment, remote sensing, archaeology, climate, water and related topics are most welcome.

We encourage participants from the Humanities to join us. Also, we will accept poster presentations as well as proposals for exhibitions and films.

Deadline for Abstracts is 10 February 2020
