Join us this Friday, January 25 to kick off the first meeting of the Thinking the Anthropocene reading series this Friday, January 25, 10:00-12:00.
We will begin the series with a discussion of two essays: Margret Grebowicz’s “Glacial Time and Lonely Crowds: The Social Effects of Climate Change as Internet Spectacle” and Nicholas de Pencier “Evidence,” in consideration of the broader questions of how to meaningfully portray a phenomenon as broad and amorphous as climate change, how understandings of “the human” must change to account for unevenly-distributed geological agency, and how to represent the Anthropocene to mobilize meaningful and organized response.
Please join us in this discussion.
