In anticipation of Trinity’s Green Week, our latest Behind the Headlines looks to the humanities to take on Climate Change. How do history, literature, film, and art help us understand the contemporary environmental challenges we face? As scientists warn us of the consequences of our human impact on the environment, the arts help us visualise the consequences of climate change and natural catastrophe.
This multi-disciplinary and international panel will examine cultural interpretations of global environmental issues and disaster; biotechnology; climate and conflict in the ancient period as well as early modern narratives of climate change when people still didn’t believe.
Where: Thomas Davis Theatre, Arts Building Trinity College Dublin
