The Anthropocene – or Human Age – is a proposed geological and cultural epoch, marked by wide scale human intervention on our planet. But what are the costs of such ‘dominance’ for our common future, and for the future of all forms of life on Earth? How do these tensions implicate us all, as well as the corporations, governments, and entities that drastically impact our environment? This graduate level winter programme will bring together diverse participants from a variety of fields from across the world, and is the ideal opportunity to broaden your (academic and professional) network.
Join us online at the University of Amsterdam, where we’ll bring together passionate participants and expert lecturers from diverse fields to develop the networks and frameworks needed to address to what for many are the most pressing issues of our time. A many-faceted problem requires an interdisciplinary approach: we will explore the Anthropocene through the lenses of geology, ecology, the social sciences and the humanities.
