Humanities for a Changing Climate
The Centre for the Study of the Inland joins with the Australian Academy of the Humanities to host ‘Humanities for a Changing Climate’. The crisis of climate change demands more than scientific understanding and technical solutions. It requires us to think again about the demarcation between humans and nature, to revisit the legacies of colonialism and our fossil-fuelled industrial past and to imagine a radically different future. This three-part online event, hosted in partnership with La Trobe’s Centre for the Study of the Inland, brings together museums, music, research and creative thinking from across the environmental humanities to reflect on how our disciplines are engaging with the challenge of living with climate change and acknowledge the personal stress, the responsibility and the injustice of the Great Acceleration. This event will be co-hosted with Katie Holmes, (Director, Centre for the Study of the Inland) and will include musical interludes from the group ‘Music for a Warming World’.
