Event Details:

We invite you to join us on Friday, January 12 for a multi-part event to celebrate the environmental humanities at Stanford – and support the development of a new environmental humanities initiative.

2-3pm: MasterClass with Bethany Wiggin (UPenn)
"Humanists at Work in the World: Campus-Community Partnerships for Environmental Justice"

Surveying multi-year campus-community partnerships, Wiggin examines the skills, beyond critical skills, that environmental humanists need. How to square longue durée processes with the ebbs and flows of an academic year? How do care and ethics factor in?

3:15-4:45pm: Workshop for Program Development

5-6:30pm: Ecopoetry Panel with Santiago Acosta (Yale), Camille Dungy (Colorado), and Cintia Santana (Stanford)
"Poetry as Practice & Discipline in Environmental Humanities"

Poet scholars read their work and discuss the relationship between art and scholarship. With specific sites and linguistic communities in mind, what kind of environmental knowledge can poetry create?
