‘Thinking the Anthropocene’ Reader Series Begins Friday, January 25

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.

Location: Milieux Resource Room – EV 11.705 1515
St-Catherine St. W., Concordia University, Montreal

Essays:
Margret Grebowicz’s “Glacial Time and Lonely Crowds: The Social Effects of Climate Change as Internet Spectacle,” Environmental Humanities (2014) 5.1: 1-22.
