The Historian's Task in the Anthropocene: Sustainability in Japan
Start Date: 2/24/2016Start Time: 4:15 PM
End Date: 2/24/2016

Event Description
Julia Adeney Thomas grew up in the coal country of southwest Virginia where almost half of the mountains have now suffered from mountain-top removal. Perhaps it is because of her love of these mountains that even as an intellectual historian she has retained a sharp interest in environmental questions. She has studied at Princeton, Oxford, and the University of Chicago, and her books deal with concepts of nature, political theory, historiography, and photography in Japan and comparatively.
