The Mississippi River School Open Seminar will run March - November 2019, with Field Campuses in St. Louis (8-10 March) and New Orleans (1-3 September). Bi-monthly open seminar video calls will have three threads: 1) We will discuss work done at the HKW field stations along the Mississippi River. 2) We will discuss diverse tactics -- community mapping, for example -- that draw people into collaborative explorations of “anthropocenics.” 3): We will discuss analytic themes and strategies for drawing out and archiving “quotidian anthropocenes” in different places, oriented by a shared analytic framework. The work contributes to the Quotidian Anthropocene project, designed to link people around the world working to address the Anthropocene in both local and global ways.
Bi-monthly open seminar video calls will be scheduled on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month 4:00-5:00 pm Central. Call agendas, supporting material and recordings will be recorded and archived here.
