Stephanie LeMenager is Barbara and Carlisle Moore Professor of English and Environmental Studies at the University of Oregon. She thinks and writes about energy, climate, culture, and the role of the arts and the humanities at the edge of the Holocene.
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.
