Anthropocene Lecture Series

The Lecture Series on the Anthropocene is organized and hosted by the Oslo School of Environmental Humanities (OSEH). The Lecture Series is also offered as a part of the Honours Certificate in Environmental Humanities and Sciences. The Anthropocene is a widely used term that designates the most recent epoch in Earth's history: an epoch in which humans have radically altered (and disrupted) the climate and ecosystems of the planet. The annual Welcome to the Anthropocene lecture series invites scholars and researchers across the humanities, social and natural sciences to explore how their disciplines are responding—both to the concept of the Anthropocene, and to the planetary crisis that it designates.
