Environmental Humanities Colloquium: Salvage: Experiment, Engagement and the Environmental Humanities
Allison Carruth, UCLA
December 4, 2019 · 4:30 pm—6:00 pm EST · 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.
