Warwick Research Seminars for 2019-2020: Excavating the Anthropocene

We are pleased to announce a series of Environmental Humanities research seminars organized during the academic year 2019-2020 on the theme of “Excavating the Anthropocene” running at the University of Warwick: https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/cross_fac/ias/networks/ehn/events.

This programme is supported through the IAS Award with the aim of establishing Environmental Humanities as a new field of cross-disciplinary research at Warwick. Each term will treat a different aspect of this topic: “Visualising the Anthropocene” (Term 1), “Sounding the Anthropocene” (Term 2), “Conceptualising the Anthropocene” (Term 3).

The next seminar will be a presentation by the artist Ignacio Costa, Wed, 30 Oct. 2019, 5pm – 7pm. Location: Social Sciences – S2.81 (Please see Warwick Interactive map here for this room)
