Presented by the Coasts, Climates, the Humanities and the Environment Consortium (CCHEC)
Thursday, September 26, 4:00 pm
National Humanities Center
The National Humanities Center will host a public conversation on Coastal Thinking led by four leading scholars of environmental humanities and science. Hester Blum (Penn State), Margaret Cohen (Stanford), Ryan Emmanuel (NC State) and Killian Quigley (University of Sydney) will join Nicholas Allen (University of Georgia) in a discussion of coastlines and cultures in context of climate breakdown, with a focus on their experiences of the diversity of humanities and science approaches to engaging with the histories and futures of communities shaped by water.
The conversation begins the public phase of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded Coasts, Climates, the Humanities and the Environment Consortium (CCHEC), whose partners include the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Georgia, the University of Florida, and Louisiana State University.
Registration is not required. Join us in-person at the National Humanities Center or via live stream.
