Environmental Humanities Reading Group
Are you interested in exploring the environmental humanities in a more casual setting? The OSEH Environmental Humanities reading group invites students, staff and members of the public to join monthly group discussions on a diversity of subjects.
The Oslo School for the Environmental Humanities hosts a reading group that meets every month to read up on, and discuss interesting topics and perspectives in the field – from ecocriticism to environmental history, animal studies, green media studies, environmental ethics and more. Readings may include articles, short stories, documentaries, historical case studies, exhibitions, video games, or current events. For example, previous topics have included 'Eco-horror' to 'Octopus Imaginaries'. The reading group aims to be a platform for exploration, collaboration, and recreation. All are welcome.
If you would like to attend one of the sessions, or if you want to suggest a topic or pitch a reading, contact the group’s organizer, PhD fellow Laura op de Beke.
You may also want to keep an eye on the groups Facebook page (@EnvironRG) for information about the events, or you can sign up to the mailing list to receive the readings and the monthly datefinder: https://sympa.uio.no/ikos.uio.no/subscribe/ehreadinggroup.
