Shamans, Sisyphus, and Shortstops: Imagining Environmental Arts & Humanities at OSU


Thursday, January 16, 2014 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Jeff Lockwood, professor of natural sciences and humanities at the University of Wyoming, will draw on his experiences and work as an entomologist turned philosopher/writer to make the case that ecological faculty and dedicated students should care deeply about fostering collaborations among the environmental sciences, arts, and humanities.  And he’ll further make the case that OSU has an enormous and unique potential to foster such desperately needed ventures.  Lockwood maintains that because no single facet of being human accounts for our environmental crises, it will require an authentic integration of the humanities, arts, and sciences for us to move beyond the denial, arrogance and fear that impede finding and implementing solutions.

This seminar is the second in a three-part series given by candidates for the Director of OSU's Environmental Arts and Humanities Initiative.
