Yusko Ward-Phillips Conference: 1000 Years of Ice and Fire

(part of a series)

Ecological collapse and human migration have been deeply intertwined throughout human history, and have inspired some of our greatest works of literature, from The Epic of Gilgamesh to The Grapes of Wrath. "1000 Years of Ice and Fire" will bring together several key thinkers working in the long history of literature in English to discuss deep historical patterns, resonances, and critical flash-points to help us better understand the complex relationship between ecological collapse, migration, and literary production.

Registration details will follow.
