Geoscientists have proposed a new designation in the geologic time scale for our current time period to be called “the Anthropocene.” The designation reflects the fact that human beings are acting as geological agents, transforming the Earth on a global scale. In this seminar course we explore the possibilities of reconfiguring the actions of humans in the Anthropocene so as to lead to a flowering of a new Era once called ‘the Ecozoic’ by cultural historian Thomas Berry.

Zoom details will be sent to all members of the Department of Earth Sciences. The talk will be streamed live on the Geoscience in Context facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/286732905909190
