Visiting scholar and RCC advisory board member Libby Robin will be giving a lecture as part of a series hosted by the University of Zurich (a partner of the RCC) entitled “Überleben im Anthropozän – Surviving the Anthropocene: Einblicke in die Environmental Humanities.” This lecture series brings together scholars from various disciplines to answer the question of how we can transform human society to cope with the challenges presented by the Anthropocene. What will such a “Great Transformation” look like and how can we draw inspiration from the past?

This lecture will be held in English. For more information (in German) on the lecture series, please see the website of the University of Zurich.
