Anthropocene and Animal Studies

I’m pleased to announce that I will be coordinating the interdisciplinary Anthropocene and Animals Studies Working Group at Penn next year. My co-director, Nicole Welk-Joerger, and I have drafted a list of readings and events for the academic year, accessible on the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities (PPEH) and English websites.

Many of the readings are published works by scholars who will be speaking at Penn next year, particularly presenters at the “Environments of Modernity” conference next spring. Organized by the Mods, Latitudes, and Anthropocene working groups, and sponsored by numerous groups at Penn including the English Department and PPEH, 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.
