Event time:

Event description: 

Environmental Humanities welcomes you to our first panel event of the semester! At “Inside/Outside: Space and Belonging in the Environmental Humanities,” we will think about how humans occupy natural and built environments and how these spaces shape the culture and practices of societies. The panel features three voices in the Environmental Humanities here at Yale:

Sunil Amrith, the Renu and Anand Dhawan Professor of History

Kishwar Rizvi, Professor of Islamic Art and Architecture

Paul Burow, a doctoral student in the combined program between the Department of Anthropology and the Yale School of the Environment

Our panelists will speak about American ecosystems and their political and cultural importance for indigenous groups, the intersections of ecology and human migration in South and Southeast Asia, and the architectural and cultural importance of Islamic architectural spaces, in relation to human experience and memory. 

We will open the space up to a moderated group conversation after panelist presentations.  

This panel will take place on Zoom; Register in advance to receive the Zoom link here:
