The Centre for Culture and Ecology Reading Group is a student-led group aimed to discuss canonical and contemporary work in the field of Environmental Humanities. It welcomes researchers working on or simply interested in environmental issues from a range of perspectives, including English Studies, Modern Languages and Cultures, Geography, Anthropology, History, Philosophy, Classics, and more.
This academic year, we would like to discuss the Anthropocene in its different possible conceptualizations. This term we'll be meeting on October 28 and December 2, from 2 to 3pm on Zoom. In our first meeting, we're going to read Jason Moore's 'Introduction' to his volume Anthropocene or Capitalocene? (Oakland: PM Press, 2016, pp. 1–11), and Eileen Crit's 'On the Poverty of Our Nomenclature', within the same book (pp. 14–33).
We plan to read a few chapters of this volume throughout the year. Please do get in touch in case you need a digital copy of the relevant chapters.
New members are always welcome, including researchers from other institutions.
