In the Facing the Anthropocene webinar series, Duke Divinity School Professor Norman Wirzba interviews leading scholars in political economy, history, anthropology, theology, philosophy, environmental humanities, and law, in order to examine the conditions under which a hopeful future might be imagined.
To kick off the new series on Jan. 21, 2021, Wirzba interviews Tim Ingold, professor emeritus of social anthropology at the University of Aberdeen. Ingold has carried out fieldwork among Saami and Finnish people in Lapland, and has written on environment, technology and social organisation in the circumpolar North, on animals in human society, and on human ecology and evolutionary theory. Wirzba is the Gilbert T. Rowe Distinguished Professor of Christian Theology at Duke Divinity and a senior fellow at Duke University’s Kenan Institute for Ethics, which is sponsoring the webinar series.
