Environmental Humanities Colloquium: “An Immense World”
Pulitzer prize winning science writer, Ed Yong will draw from his new book, “An Immense World” to reveal the hidden realms of animals’ senses and their astonishingly varied ways of perceiving the world. Yong’s talk will explore why the pandemic was so devastating and necessary future actions. Yong engages the challenges of science writing as inevitably shaped by culture, social norms and collective decisions. This is the first talk in the fall 2023 Environmental Humanities and Social Transformation Colloquium.
The Environmental Humanities and Social Transformation Colloquium is co-sponsored by the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI), Anthropology, the Fluid Futures Forum, the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies, and the Eco-Theories Colloquium.
