This month, the Environmental Humanities Center is turning two years old (already…). Next to celebrating with drinks and snacks, a brief review and outlook, and chance for conversation, we invite our members to propose activities, research, events, reading groups, interventions (from tiny to large), which you could imagine to organize – together with others.
Interview with T. J. Demos
Art historian T.J. Demos was at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam to present his most recent book publication Against the Anthropocene (2017) on December 12th 2017. We had the opportunity to interview him on behalf of the Environmental Humanities Center. Just before he started his book presentation we met and we had a chance to ask him some questions about his view on the environmental humanities and the importance of our Environmental Humanities Center.
