The Penn Program in Environmental Humanities presents a series of events exploring what we mean by nature in the age of the human, the Anthropocene, on 4/10 from 10:30-2 in Claudia Cohen Hall 17. Lunch will be available to early registrants. This event is open to the public and is co-sponsored by the Penn Humanities Forum and the Penn Green Campus Partnership with assistance from Art in the Open.

Join us for a keynote featuring writer, artist, and historian Jenny Price, professor in the Environment and the Humanities at Princeton University. As Ranger Jenny, Price leads tours of the Los Angeles River with the Los Angeles Urban Rangers collective, and she writes and teaches on topics from urban river revitalization to comedy and climate change. You can also talk with a roundtable of experts who explore the meanings of Nature in the Anthropocene from various disciplinary prospectives including the history of science, ecology, and the arts. Is urban ecology the new normal? And, you can be part of a hands-on workshop about the ecology of the Schuylkill and the creation of an Urban Rangers program for Philadelphia in the Anthropocene.

Register now! Lunch will be limited, so sign up soon!
