Workshop: “New Directions in the Energy Humanities”

March 29, 2019

A two-day workshop at the Whitney Humanities Center to assess recent progress in the field of the “energy humanities,” and to explore new directions in research and teaching.  

The workshop will explore participants’ ongoing research, discuss energy humanities teaching and courses, and reflect on recent edited collections and the state of the field. We will consider the internationalization of a topic that, within the Western academy, has predominantly focused on North America and Western Europe. We also will consider ways to mobilize scholarship on energy humanities in a way that it can contribute to a broader public discourse on energy production, consumption, and climate policy in conjunction with environmental justice issues.

More details, including related public events, will be posted later in the fall semester.
