The Future of Life on Earth in the Age of the Anthropocene

Many scholars around the world are claiming we have entered a new geological epoch in the last 200 years, the Anthropocene, in which human activities have now transformed the geology of the planet, including the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, the lithosphere, and the biosphere. In this session, students from Dr. Keating's Political Ecology Class will introduce the concept of the Anthropocene and what it means, based on their research projects.

Please note that presentation times are approximate. If you are interested in attending sessions with multiple presentations, please be in the room at the start of the session.
