Description:17 October 2020 – St Anne's College, University of Oxford organised by London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research Multiple environmental crises are increasingly inescapable at both transnational and local levels and the role of the humanities in addition to technology and politics is more and more recognized as central for exploring and finding solutions.
