Karen Pinkus (University of Southern California)
The Disjointed Temporality of Climate Change
Karen Pinkus is Professor of French and Italian and Comparative Literature at UCLA. She is currently working on the role of the humanities, and specifically literary theory, in confronting climate change. She argues that the Humanities are crucial to the most basic thinking about what it might mean to “solve” the problems of greenhouse gas emissions.
This event is part of the Cultures of Climate Change Research Group Seminar series.
Meetings are held on alternate Mondays in term from 5pm to 7pm at CRASSH.
All welcome. No registration fee.
