  • Julia Adeney Thomas, Associate Professor History, University of Notre Dame 5:00pm: A Lecture by Julia Adeney Thomas: The Historian’s Task in the Anthropocene

    If our future looks nothing like our past because of climate change, why bother with history?  That’s the central question of this talk.  Earth System scientists are saying that we’ve entered a new geological epoch, an unprecedented condition, they’re calling “the Anthropocene.” Thomas explores what this means scientifically and the challenge it poses to historical practice.  

    This lecture is financially assisted by the Japan-US Friendship Commission and the Northeast Asia Council of the Association for Asian Studies.  It is co-sponsored by the History department and Asian Studies program.
