HUCE History & Literature in an Extractive Age

How might historical narratives and literary analyses help us better make sense of the intensive extraction of the Earth’s resources that underlies our modern era? 

In this discussion hosted by Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE) on Thursday, June 23 at 1pm EDT, historian of science Victor Seow and literary scholar Elizabeth Carolyn Miller will draw upon their recently published books to reflect on the centrality of humanistic inquiry to our confrontation with the confluent crises of our present. They will be joined in conversation by Karen L. Thornber, the Harry Tuchman Levin Professor in Literature and Professor of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University.
