Anthropocene and Animal Studies Working Group

This fall, I will begin coordinating the interdisciplinary Anthropocene and Animals Studies Working Group at Penn, along with Nicole Welk-Joerger (Ph.D. candidate, History and Sociology of Science). In preparation for the coming year, we have drafted a list of meetings and events, accessible on the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities (PPEH) and English websites.

We will be reading a number of texts by speakers at Penn next year, particularly presenters at the Environments of Modernity conference. Organized by the Mods, Latitudes, and Anthropocene/Animal Studies working groups, the conference aims to feature visiting faculty and Penn graduate students who will speak to the role of “environment” as a concept in the shaping of modernity.
