Open Seminars

August 20th, 2019

Free, online courses which connect people across the globe in an effort to collaboratively produce Anthropocene knowledge.

The Open Seminars will direct collaborative attention to the many scales and types of systems that interlace and synergize to produce anthropocenics on the ground in particular locales and vernaculars.

The Open Seminars will follow three threads:

  1. We will discuss work done at the Field Stations along the Mississippi River.
  2. We will discuss diverse tactics such as community mapping that draw people into collaborative explorations of “anthropocenics.”
  3. We will discuss analytic themes and strategies for drawing out and archiving “quotidian anthropocenes” in different places, oriented by a shared analytic framework.

The work contributes to the Quotidian Anthropocene project, designed to link people around the world working to address the Anthropocene in both local and global ways.

Bi-monthly open seminar video calls will be scheduled on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month 4:00-5:00 pm Central. Call agendas, supporting material and recordings will be recorded and archived on Disaster STS Network.
