Let’s Float!

The Floating Laboratory on Action and Theory at Sea is an experimental global conversation inspired, motivated and literally moved by the sea. As such, it is located nowhere permanently, but rather it is rotating in the sea, along other innate and non-innate flows, such as merchandise, minerals and militaries, occasionally navigating through them.

FLOATS seeks to be a continuous critical commentary on the perils of state-oriented sovereignty and land-centered social theory. It takes seriously the idea of “floating” and the state of contemporary rootlessness, as in migration, therefore, while facilitating floating conversations over questions of social theory and the environment, including the relationship between nature and humanity.
