The Off_Earth Atlas workshop: Territories
08 June 2023, 9:00 am–6:00 pm
This workshop explores how the ground upon which the concept of territories is built may be shifting as humanity concerns itself with outer space. It asks how a move to outer space shifts our thinking on territory.
This event is free.

The Off Earth Atlas is an interdisciplinary project, led by anthropologists, which will consider life in outer space in many different and exciting ways -from what biological definitions of life are to the new social relations that come about in outer space.
Through four workshops (on ‘Life’, ‘territories, ‘Architecture, infrastructure and Materials’ and ‘Cosmology’) a multimedia website and a high-grade publication, ‘The Off Earth Atlas’, will highlight the great work at UCL, PSL and strengthen our networks together and internationally in growing field of research on the social studies of outer space.
On June 8th & 9th we invite ten speakers to discuss the idea of ‘territory’ and ‘Architecture, Infrastructure and Materials’ as humans leave the earth. The workshop is open to the public to attend but registration is required.
