This event is part of the 2019 Cleveland Humanities Festival: NATURE
Planetary-scaled environmental issues are the frame for environmentalism today. They imply that we change how we think about politics. From re-examining extractive fossil fuels, to questioning the economy of animal products, to re-organizing governance of Earth and modifying some of our central moral, spiritual, and political concepts, the politics of Earth is the context for thinking about nature today.
Moderated by Jeremy Bendik-Keymer, Elmer G. Beamer-Hubert H. Schneider Professor in Ethics, panelists from the environmental humanities will discuss their work and take questions from the audience.
This event is co-sponsored by Holden Forests & Gardens.
Free and open to the public. Registration requested.
