ENTANGLED TIMES

The Lectures in this series discuss entangled temporalities [natural-cultural, human-non-human, living-non-living, planetary-global], and how contemporary arts and technology are being shaped by these questions. Students will learn about arts, humanities and technology perspectives on the anthropocene, and how new methodological questions are being posed in the light of subjects such as geology and human-animal studies.
