An evening with artist-scholars Elaine Gan (Experimental Humanities), and Marina Zurkow (Tisch School of the Arts), in conversation with Una Chaudhuri (Experimental Humanities), and Yanoula Athanassakis (Environmental Humanities). Gan and Zurkow’s respective bodies of work engage in public humanities and collaborative experiments that draw on the arts, humanities, social and natural sciences to ask questions about radical pluralities of more-than-human worlds. By presenting a series of collaborative experiments, the conversation will focus on the creative and critical lenses through which climate change becomes sensible to new publics.
