“Humanities: Land Sea Space” Exploratory Forum
December 6, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - December 7, 2018 @ 3:30 pm CST
In a world of climate change and the Anthropocene, pressing global issues concerning environmental and intergenerational justice, human-nature relationships, coastal and island communities, and more-than-human ethics – among many others – call upon the critical methods of the humanities, as well as perspectives from the social and natural sciences. As a new Glasscock Center initiative, Humanities: Land Sea Space will catalyze innovative research across a variety of disciplines and contexts at Texas A&M and beyond, and contribute to current debates in the environmental humanities, blue/marine humanities, geohumanities, energy humanities, and public humanities. The aim of this forum is to explore research and ideas for the new initiative.
The Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research will host a “’Humanities: Land Sea Space’ Exploratory Forum” on Thursday, December 6, 2018, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. and on Friday December 7, 2018, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Melbern G. Glasscock Building Room 311.
