Join us for a lunchtime conversation on Feral Atlas: The More-than Human Anthropocene, participatory projects, and the Environmental Humanities.
Feral Atlas invites you to explore the ecological worlds created when nonhuman entities become tangled up with human infrastructure projects. Seventy-nine field reports from scientists, humanists, and artists show you how to recognize “feral” ecologies, that is, ecologies that have been encouraged by human-built infrastructures, but which have developed and spread beyond human control. These infrastructural effects, Feral Atlas argues, are the Anthropocene.

A speaker series co-sponsored by: The English Department’s Contemporary Poetry Colloquium, the High Meadows Environmental Institute, 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.
