Ecology/Echography: Heidegger’s Hut — Three Displacements
Cary Wolfe, the Bruce and Elizabeth Dunlevie Professor of English at Rice University, will present the first talk in the Ecotheories Colloquium — this event is free and open to Princeton University faculty, staff and students. Wolfe has written on a range of topics, from American poetry to bioethics, and is the series editor for the Posthumanities Series published by University of Minnesota Press.
The Ecotheories Colloquium will focus on ecotheories and ecopoetics — the work of scholars for whom ecology becomes a foundation for theories of literature, and for whom literature becomes a foundation for theories of ecology. Ecotheories is the 2022-23 installment of the Contemporary Poetry Colloquium based in the Princeton Department of English and is cosponsored by HMEI, The Environmental Media Lab, the Bain-Swiggett Poetry Fund, the Effron Center for the Study of America, the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Humanities, and the University Center for Human Values.
