Visiting Scholar Lecture: Dr. Una Chaudhuri – Art & Climate Chaos

Date(s) - November 05, 2015
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The pace and unpredictability of the phenomena we’ve been referring to as “climate change” makes that phrase seem almost euphemistic; recognizing that we are in an age of climate chaos calls us to a heightened sense of urgency and opens new areas for creative engagement. This presentation explores art that encourages us to “take the climate personally,” using many affective registers–beyond guilt, shame, fear, and anger–to realign our values, thoughts, and feelings with more realistic and resilient attitudes to the strange new world ahead.
