Are We Stewards of the Earth? (Forum for European Philosophy dialogue)

22 June 2015, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

Are humans exceptional amongst living beings? How should they understand their relationship with, and responsibilities towards, the natural world?

Current ecological crises have led to new conceptions of this relationship, increased focus on human responsibilities, and changing
environmental practices. In this panel, two speakers will address both the theoretical questions raised by these issues and assess some of the practical responses which have been advanced.

Claire Colebrook is Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of English at Penn State University.

Jennifer Gabrys is Reader in Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Chair: Danielle Sands is Lecturer in Philosophy, Royal Holloway, University of London and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow
