Here are photos from today’s rally in Muncie, which called for action on climate change. Rallies were held all over the world to place pressure on global leaders who are meeting in New York this Tuesday for the United Nations Climate Summit. In New York City alone, as many as 400,000 people took to the streets.
This year, the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center at University of California-Santa Barbara is hosting a seminar series on the Anthropocene. Among the many speakers included will be Andrew Revkin from the New York Times. I will also be giving two talks. The first talk, which is titled Into the Bowels of the Anthropocene: Excrement and the Current Ecological Crisis, will be held on Thursday, November 20th. The second talk, The Problems with the Anthropocene: A View from Amazonia, will be held the following day.
