2013 Graduate School Public Lectures: Lawrence Buell
Kane Hall 110

This event is at capacity. As a courtesy, stand-by attendees will be accepted on a space-available basis 15 minutes before the event.

Lawrence Buell

Where do the disparate worlds of artistry and environmentalism collide? Lawrence Buell will explore this unlikely intersection in his lecture, Environmental Imagination at the Crossroads. Humankind has become the primary driver of environmental change for the first time in history; as a result, arts communities have reacted by reexamining humanity’s place on Earth. Buell will look at five recent literary works from around the world and discuss how they intersect with a changing climate and uncertain future.

Lawrence Buell is a professor of American literature at Harvard University.
