PESA Conference 2016: Knowledge Ecologies

The Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia (PESA)

Dec 8 - Dec 12, 2016,
Warwick Hotel, Coral Coast, Fiji

Knowledge ecology is a term that emerges from the collaboration and file sharing of social media. But it signals something else; an ecosystem of knowledge, the rhizome of discrete and yet inter-related fields, of disciplinary depth and interdisciplinary sharing. Knowledge ecologies speaks on the intersectionality of contemporary society. It engages with the reality of new technologies, of financial collapse, of climate change, of resource exhaustion. Knowledge ecologies draws up new semiotics of epistemology that stretch concepts from one discipline area into new shapes as they re-organise and extend a field from its traditional contours, to dimensions that accommodates the demands of our rapidly changing world.
