ABOUT THIS EVENT

Climate Change is one of the most pressing concerns we face in the contemporary moment, and one which requires urgent, radical attention. This seminar will bring together voices from the International Institute for Cultural Enquiry, the Environment and Sustainability Institute and Penryn Humanities to discuss the galvanising potential of Environmental Humanities in Cornwall and beyond, and launch ‘Public Policy and Climate Change: The Contribution of the Arts and Humanities’ by Dr. Joshua Wells- a new research paper forthcoming publication by IICE.

Joshua Wells will be joined in conversation by Professor Nicola Whyte (Associate Professor in Landscape and Social History) and Dr Ilya Maclean (Associate Professor of Global Change Biology). The discussion will be chaired by Professor Rob Gleave (Director of the International Institute for Cultural Enquiry and Professor of Arabic Studies).

This seminar will have an in-person element for those with access to the Environment and Sustainability Institute at the University of Exeter's Penryn campus. Those who attend will receive a complimentary lunch offering. We will also deliver this seminar online for those who do not secure an in-person place or who wish to attend online.
