About this event
Environmental Humanities on the Schuylkill River:
Bethany Wiggin is Founding Director of the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities. Her research interests lie in the intersections between the early modern period and contemporary theoretical concerns, including global and transnational literature, translation and multilingualism, and the environmental humanities. . She began co-organizing two conferences for 2016-17 and events exploring gatherings of research across the arts and sciences and public engagement in the environmental humanities: Timescales in October and An Ecotopian Toolkit to come in April. Since the U.S. election, she has played a pivotal role in launching #Datafuge, a public and collaborative project designed to address concerns about federal climate and environmental data.
