Seminar Report: Filtering the Anthropocene

November 23rd, 2014

A report on the perspectives and contributions of the seminar on Filtering the Anthropocene. 

The Anthropocene was initially proposed as a scientific concept—a new geological epoch in the history of planet Earth—but the term has now been adopted, reinterpreted, and “filtered” by many others, both within and outside academia. This seminar explored the ways in which different groups filter the Anthropocene concept, making sense of it from their own perspectives and experiences.
