Drawing on the fields of New Materialism and the Environmental Humanities, an upcoming conference in Geneva on 23-25 June 2016 will address how sciences, arts and texts enact encounters with materiality as an entanglement of relationships, meanings, matter and movement:

• How do we encounter materiality, materials and/or matter in the twenty-first century?

• How do language and literary language in particular offer ways of encountering materiality and/or matter?

• How have the developments in ecology, neurosciences, physics and new media changed the way we encounter the world of matter?
