2023 Summer Institute in Environmental Humanities

The Center for the Arts and Humanities is delighted to announce the fourth annual Summer Institute in Environmental Humanities.

ANNUAL THEME

Food For Thought

Food highlights a living paradox: it represents the key ingredient that binds us together, and yet divides us when power dynamics and privilege are at play. By shedding light on these intricate realities, “Food for Thought’ seeks to problematize and critically assess the complex social, cultural, environmental, political relationships that we have with food.
