UK workshop series: Rethinking the nature/culture divide

The Anthropocene – the geological concept highlighting that humans have had a fundamental influence on the geological epoch, increasingly transgressing planetary limits – is held to mark the end of the nature/culture divide. Nature can no longer be taken for granted, imagined to be fixed and immutable, but is instead understood as an active agent, as ecological threats and risks increasingly dominate our thinking. Culture – human action – is no longer something that operates in a separate sphere but produces the scientific phenomena that it once set out merely to observe. This series of seven workshops aims to explore what the end of the nature/culture divide means for living in the anthropocene.
