Environmental Humanities Colloquium: Salvage: Experiment, Engagement and the Environmental Humanities

Allison Carruth, UCLA

December 4, 2019 · 4:30 pm6:00 pm · 111 East Pyne

Princeton Environmental Institute

Allison Carruth will draw upon the environmental humanities to propose a reinvention of the liberal arts that actively engages with the crises of our time. With Bruno Latour’s query, “Why has critique run out of steam?” as her point of departure, Carruth will outline a method of sociocultural and ecological salvage that integrates history, rhetoric and aesthetics with trial-and-error practices of experiment and making, including policymaking.
