Public launch event and environmental lecture at the Penryn Campus
The University of Exeter’s Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) is celebrating the launch of the Centre for Environmental Arts and Humanities (CEAH) on Wednesday 11 September.
The CEAH creates opportunities for shared investigation of the complex relationship between the environment and the human imagination.
The public event takes place at the ESI on the University’s Penryn Campus (formerly known as the University's Cornwall Campus) on Wednesday 11 September from 15:00 - 18:30. Those who attend can contribute to an open discussion, enjoy a cream tea and hear from keynote speaker Peter Coates, an environmental historian at the University of Bristol.
Peter specialises in nineteenth and twentieth-century American history, especially environmental history, which looks at the study of human relations with the rest of the natural world over time. During his public lecture Peter will be discussing - ‘creatures of heritage: enshrining animals as national and global treasures.’
The ESI is working with businesses and enterprises across all sectors of the economy in Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and beyond to translate research and expertise into innovative business practices, products and services in order to respond to the challenges of environmental change. It has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund Convergence Programme (£22.9M) and the South West Regional Development Agency (£6.6M), with significant support from the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
