A symposium on climate change brings together faculty from NYU Global sites as well as faculty from Washington Square, to explore questions that emerge surrounding climate change and the humanities (very broadly construed).
Participants address climate change under different points of view, with a research in history, literary and theatre studies, cultural studies, the fine arts, anthropology, ethnology, architecture, urban planning, and design.
The goal of this meeting is two-fold: first, to create a conversation about these issues that is high level, small-scale, comparative and interdisciplinary; and second, to build intellectual networks among NYU affiliated faculty in many different locations.
