The 52nd Annual Academy Symposium

November 2021 – Details to follow

Climate change is not only a technical or scientific issue, it is also a human-generated calamity, a problem demanding the attention of anyone concerned with what it means to be human amidst increasingly degraded planetary ecosystems. Our current and continuing climate emergency requires us to rethink our understandings of humanity and the environment, of culture and nature, and their co-constitutive relations.

The 52nd Annual Symposium will provide a forum for all disciplines to reconsider the modern human-environment or culture-nature binaries that have framed so much humanities scholarship, and to ask if we can envisage a more ecological or relational or interactive humanities.
