Claire Colebrook, Professor of English at The Pennsylvania State University, will lecture on “Scale and Refuge: Twilight of the Anthropocene” on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 in Smith-Buonanno Hall, Room 106 at 5:30 pm. This talk looks at the new geological scale of the anthropocene and the ways in which this new time frame seems to close down a certain conception of human history, while also returning 'us' to a unified (and no longer open) sense of what it means to be human.
