Co-sponsored with the University of Utah, The Future of the Environmental Humanities symposium will begin at the University of Utah on Thursday evening, but starting at 2:00 pm on September 25th, it will move to the BYU campus for two events.
First will be an address by William Jordan, author of The Sunflower Forest, at 2:00 pm in the EIZ auditorium. His topic will be “Mortal Interdebtedness: Making sense of ecological restoration, a case study in the practice of the humanities.”
Then starting at 3:45-5:30, also in the EIZ auditorium, we will have a panel of three papers. The title of the panel is “The Challenge of Tracing the Anthropocene” and the papers and presenters are the following:
Elizabeth DeLoughrey (UCLA): “Maritime Futures of the Anthropocene”
Chip Oscarson (BYU): “Toxicity and Melting Ice: The Challenge of the Anthropocene in Nordic Cinema”
Gillen D’Arcy Wood (Illinois): “Versed in Country Things”: Robert Frost, Sustainability, and the End of Elegy”
