Re-Envisioning Nature: An Environmental Humanities Lecture Series

Re-Envisioning Nature:
An Environmental Humanities
Lecture Series

The future of our environment is among the most pressing issues of our time. In 2022-23, URI’s Center for the Humanities is devoting its annual lecture series to the environmental humanities, a discipline that uses humanistic questions and methods to shed light on how we interpret our environment and envision its future. This yearlong series draws on the expertise of environmental historians, literary scholars, musicians and writers to demonstrate the role the humanities can play in understanding and addressing the urgent environmental questions of the day.

All events in the series are free and open to the public.
