Dolly and Finn Arne Jørgensen, directors of The Greenhouse, the environmental humanities research group at the University of Stavanger, Norway, continue to host authors of recently published books in the environmental humanities. They launched the book talks in March 2020 as a response to COVID-19 and as a way of keeping the community together. Every talk is recorded and put online after the talk – these recordings are useful resources for teaching and classroom assignments, especially now that much teaching has moved online.

Upcoming talks for the rest of the year are: 

26 Oct: Hannah Boast, Hydrofictions

2 Nov: Peder Anker, The Power of the Periphery

9 Nov: Aidan Tynan, The Desert in Modern Literature & Philosophy

16 Nov: Alenda Chang, Playing Nature

23 Nov (note: at 10:00): Rebecca Giggs, Fathoms

30 Nov: Alexandra Palmer, Ethical Debates in Orangutan Conservation

7 Dec (note: at 18:00): Peter Dauvergne, AI in the Wild

14 Dec: Elizabeth Parker, The Forest and the EcoGothic
