Environmental Humanities Colloquium: “Another Sky: Dreams of Ecological Futures for Dismantling the Anthropocene”

Felipe Milanez, assistant professor of humanities, arts and sciences Professor Milton Santos and the Multidisciplinary Graduate Program in Culture and Society, Federal University of Bahia (Brazil), will present “Another Sky: Dreams of Ecological Futures for Dismantling the Anthropocene” via Zoom — click here to join.

Milanez will consider three insurgent Amerindian stories from contemporary Brazil that, when considered against a long backdrop of genocide, appear as dreams that are, as Brazilian writer Alton Krenak said, “an instant of knowledge.” Together, these narratives help mobilize for a collective future to dismantle the Anthropocene, a future that safeguards the socioecological conditions that sustain life itself within the great forests.

Milanez is the final speaker in the fall 2021 Environmental Humanities and Social Transformation Colloquium sponsored by the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI).
