Description

This is a special session of the Department of Classics Faculty & Graduate Student Coffee Hour, with guest speaker Professor David Smith. David Smith is a Professor in the Department of Classics at San Francisco State University. His presentation will be an overview of the role of Classics in Environmental Humanities and will provide us with a broad look at how our field can benefit from this sub-discipline.

Environmental Humanities is a new sub-field that aims to bring together scholars of the humanities with artists, engineers, and scientists in a conversation about our changing environment. The new Environmental Humanities Program at Ohio State was developed by professors in the Departments of English, History, and Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
