After Nature: A Politics for the Anthropocene with Jedediah Purdy

November 17, 2015 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3041

In his latest book, After Nature: A Politics for the Anthropocene, Professor Jedediah Purdy defines and details the Anthropocene epoch - the age of humans - and calls for a new way of thinking about political, legal, and cultural solutions to environmental problems. Tracing critical changes in our relationship with the natural world, the book has been praised by critics for its depth and urgency. In an era where humans and the environment are inextricably tied, how do we approach environmental politics, economics and ethics? Professor Lisa Kern Griffin will begin the conversation and discussion. All are welcome to join. Sponsored by the Office of the Dean, The Goodson Law Library, and the Program in Public Law. Lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information please contact Sarah Holsapple at
