Part of the 2016–2017 Fellows' Presentation Series

Lecture by Stephanie LeMenager RI '17

Stephanie LeMenager’s work at the Radcliffe Institute pursues the question of how the humanities can help to shape modes of being human that are more ecologically connected and prepared for living with climate change. She will take the specific problem of drought as a touchstone from which to build out the concept of what she calls “H2O U,” a university dedicated to thinking through the effects of drought on what humanity is and can aspire to become.

Free and open to the public.
