L’anthropos de la (s)cène… Quelle humanité pour cette nouvelle ère géo-climatique?
The Anthropos of the (S)cene: What Shape Humanity in this New Geoclimatic Era?]

Join David Jaclin, Professor of Sociological and Anthropological Studies at the University of Ottawa, in an exploration of the concept of anthropos (Greek for “human”). If humankind has indeed instigated a new geological epoch, which concept of humanity are we talking about, and how do we identify responsibilities and powers, problems and solutions?

In French with bilingual question period.

Included with Gallery admission.


The next Meet the Expert event related to the Anthropocene exhibition will take place on Saturday, November 24, 2018 with Heather Davis, Assistant Professor of Culture and Media at the New School, New York. Learn more
