Keynote Address for What Arts & Humanities Are Good For Series - by William Cronon

Oct 8, 2014  ·  6:00 p.m. 7:30 p.m.  · 

This event is part of Princeton Environmental Institute series: What Arts & Humanities Are Good For

Is the climate warming at a terrifying pace? Are toxins leaking into the groundwater? Do our cities have wide, gaping food deserts? The What Arts & Humanities Are Good For series asks how we can deploy the essential insights and methods of the humanities and arts to tackle urgent environmental issues.

We will define and explore the particular powers of History, Literature, and the Arts—powers that have typically remained opaque, and therefore under-utilized, in the arenas of environmental problem-solving. We will integrate these powers with those of the sciences and social sciences, through intensely interdisciplinary discussions. And we will ask how to deploy these powers on the ground: how, exactly, can the humanities and arts help us envision and enact more livable and sustainable places and more effective and equitable environmental practices?

Come once, come twice, come three times, and help us build this cross-disciplinary conversation on some of the most urgent challenges we face in 2014 and beyond.
