This event is part of a Fall 2023 class, “Environmental Humanities: Theory, Method, Practice,” led by PPEH Founding Director Bethany Wiggin.

Adam DePaul will visit the class to discuss how storytelling might be thought of as a way to work towards "ecotopian" futures. Adam DePaul is the Chief of Education and Tribal Storykeeper of the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania

Environmental Humanities: Theory, Methods, Practice is a seminar-style course designed to introduce students to the trans- and interdisciplinary field of environmental humanities. Weekly readings and discussions will be complemented by guest speakers from a range of disciplines including ecology, atmospheric science, computing, history of science, medicine, anthropology, literature, and the visual arts. Participants will develop their own research questions and a final project, with special consideration given to building the multi-disciplinary collaborative teams research in the environmental humanities often requires.
