Workshop "Antiquity and the Anthropocene" - 26-27/02/2021, Dublin (Ireland)
Building on this environment-human interdependency debate, this workshop will look back at the environmental impact of some of the largest power networks of the past, including ancient empires, with the aim of re-examining ancient perceptions of nature, power, and power over nature to help us better understand our present situation. By offering a lively and challenging setting for discussion to international scholars, nature writers, and artists, the workshop will foster new approaches to explain the relationship between human societies and their natural environments, providing a novel interpretative framework for current and past environmental crises. This event aims to start a conversation that will produce an interdisciplinary response to the most important issue of our time.
