Eric Prieto is Associate Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The author of Listening In: Music, Mind, and the Modernist Narrative, he has published widely on literary representations of place and on the relations between music and literature.
This lecture is part of City/Nature: Urban Environmental Humanities, a three-week summer institute at the Simpson Center for the Humanities, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The institute examines how Western cultures have historically viewed city and nature as separate—and how a more integrative understanding can serve an increasingly urbanized world. It uses Seattle’s complex environmental history as a window into broader questions of global justice and health.
Lecture is open to the UW campus community and the public.
