The Environmental Humanities have emerged over last decades as a response to the increasingly acute impacts that climate change is exerting on societies globally. This renewed attention to climate and environment as a significant facet of human lives and livelihoods is the broad topic of this lecture series. More specifically, we ask: What should be the main agendas for an archaeology in and of the Anthropocene? Inviting to a dialogue across disciplines an aim of this seminar series is to discuss and build a manifesto for New Environmental Archaeologies. Are we asking the right questions? Focusing on the right materials? Using the right terms, to the right audiences? A series of interconnected key concerns will be addressed in 11 seminars, each devoted to a particular theme, ranging from capitalism and geopolitics to museums and animals.

The lecture series is open to the public and will be streamed on Zoom. You can register to join the whole series online on the event page.
