Environmental Humanities talk Thursday

Nipissing University welcomes Dr. Brett Buchanan, director of the School of Environment and associate professor of Philosophy at Laurentian University, to campus for a Master of Environmental Studies/Master of Environmental Sciences seminar on Thursday, December 8, at 7 p.m. in the Small Cafeteria.

The Environmental Humanities: Contributions from Northeastern Ontario

Scholars working across interdisciplinary boundaries are increasingly working together to think through and experiment with the complicated entanglements of our natural worlds. Different modes of knowing, understanding, and relating to others in our multispecies worlds are being explored, including the rise of human-animal studies, new ethnographic collaborations, and ethics in a time of uncertainty. In this talk I’ll discuss some of the theoretical and historical background to the environmental humanities along with my research projects on philosophical ethology, environmental consequences of Sudbury’s land remediation, and the continued (and fraught) urban presence of black bears.
