Environmental Humanities 101: Critical Studies for Feverish Times

Hybrid Event
May 22: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

UVM professor Adrian Ivakhiv, founder of EcoCultureLab, introduces the rapidly growing field of Environmental Humanities, which is designed to address ecological crisis, climate crisis, dramatic global inequality, political polarization, media frenzy, future pandemics, and much more. Ivakhiv will focus on what it means to live at this present moment, a moment problematically called “the Anthropocene.”
