This trans-Atlantic conversation about climate change explores ancient and modern views of human relations to the earth from disciplines as seemingly different as legal studies and art, geography and ethics and from places as different as North America, Europe and Southeast Asia. While the “numbers” on climate change can pitch us into despair, these scholars offer hope that it is possible to change our individual and collective attitudes and behaviors in interacting with our environment—or at least to work toward such change. With Prof. Harriet Hawkins and Prof. Rebecca Tsosie. Moderated by Prof. Irene Kacandes.
This event is part of a series called “Humanities for Humans”, presented in partnership with the De Gruyter Foundation (Berlin). Across eight sessions — four in-person and four virtual — the series brings people together to help generate a better understanding of what the humanities are and what role they can play in today’s complex world.
