Why Environmental Humanities? | Events | Summer Semester 2019

The Environmental Humanities lectures from summer semester 2019 has offered a wide range of topics.

They have dealt with questions of culture and science from a historical lens, especially concerning the development of wheat crop over time and the so-called biological revolution that surrounded Darwin and his theories. Summer semester modules have also closely examined the cultural dimensions of ‘sustainability’. Other projects have included an art history and photography project that presents the abstract topic of climate change made tangible through imagery.

The lectures will be complemented by a workshop on PBL (Problem-Based Learning). Information on further events can be found under ‘News’.
