Environmental Humanities Colloquium: “Once Upon a Tomorrow”
Science journalist Meera Subramanian, the 2019 Currie C. and Thomas A. Barron Visiting Professor in the Environment and the Humanities in the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI), will present, “Once Upon a Tomorrow,” at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, in East Pyne, Room 111.
Subramanian challenges us to step into other people’s lives — and the narratives that shape them — during this pivotal time for humanity and the planet. From farmers in north India to fly fishermen in Montana, individual stories and perspectives may be more important than ever as nearly 8 billion humans struggle to share one planet.
Subramanian is the first speaker in the Fall 2019 Environmental Humanities Colloquium sponsored by PEI. Additional speakers and dates in this series are:
“Humans as Acquired Taste: Thoughts on the History of an Idea”
Assistant Professor of History, Princeton University
“A Woman of Many Masks: Alice Sheldon as Climate-Fiction Pioneer and Anthropocene Prophet”
Professor Emeritus of History, University of Sydney
“Salvage: Experiment, Engagement and the Environmental Humanities”
Allison Carruth, Anschutz Distinguished Fellow in American Studies, Princeton University; Associate Professor of English, University of California-Los Angeles
