By Sydney Environmental Humanities Lecture Series, 2018

25 January, 2018

University of Sydney organisers: Thom van Dooren and Astrida Neimanis from the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies


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.
