The Munich-based ENHANCE team is happy to announce final project event “(Um)Weltschmertz, an exercise in humility and melancholia”.
It will take place at the Deutsches Museum and Rachel Carson center in Munich, from 17th to 20th October, 2018. We hope to explore the deep ties that connect humans and their cultural and emotional lives to the changing environment around issues of environmental change and conflict, as well as the role of the environmental humanities in times of crises.
Highlights of the public program include:
17/10: Opening keynote by Prof. Erik Swyngedouw (University of Manchester)
18/10: Screening of movie “The Anthropologist” followed by a discussion with main protagonist Prof. Susan Crate (George Mason University)
19/10: Keynote talk by Prof. Robert Bullard (Texas Southern University)
20/10: Closing lecture by Prof. Sheila Jasanoff (Harvard University)
The event will coincide with the launching of a special exhibition at the Deutsches Museum including 3D clips filmed at ENHANCE fellows’ research locations.
A full version of the program will be made available soon.
