Anthropology in the time of climate change - An Insights 2011 lecture



30 September 2011

Linda Connor, Professor in the Department of Anthropology and alumnus of the University of Sydney, will be giving an inaugural lecture in the Nicholson Museum on Thursday 6 October.

Following on from the huge success of previous Insights 2011 lectures by Professor Barbara Caine and Professor Alison Bashford, Professor Linda Connor's new lecture, entitled Anthropology in the Time of Climate Change, will focus on humans' interactions with the environment, and the consequences these may have in the future.

Professor Connor will analyse new and productive ways of thinking about humanity's visioning of immortality, death, survival and politics in the time of climate change.

A graduate of the University of Sydney's Department of Anthropology, Professor Connor has worked around the world as both a researcher and academic.

Her broad interests in shamanism, religion and ritual, and environmental change have converged in recent years in the study of anthropogenic climate change, culture and place.

She has also undertaken and supervised research in Hunter Valley NSW, Indonesia and Nepal.
