The Humanities in a Time of Environmental Crisis
Sydney Environmental Humanities Lecture Series, 2018
Environmental change seems to be happening all around us, and yet voices differ over its causes and consequences. At the same time, our human activity is playing an increasingly significant role in shaping the earth and its future possibilities.
This landmark lecture series will offer a range of talks by leading international scholars in the Environmental Humanities. It will draw on insights from history, literature, philosophy, anthropology, and related disciplines and explore the important roles that the humanities can play in addressing some of the most pressing environmental challenges of our day.
This Lecture Series is jointly funded and coordinated by the University of New South Wales, Macquarie University, Western Sydney University, the University of Sydney and the Australian Museum.
