Annual Environmental Humanities Multimedia Mixer

In collaboration with students, the Environmental Humanities Program hosts an annual creative-arts mixer at the School of Live Culture | Lab at Sage Art Center. This event includes presentations of environmental video, acoustic ecologies, and literary readings. In the video to the right, Ria Karve (CAS '17 / 2018 e5) reads the dream sequence from the novel Animal's People, by Indra Sinha, while Eastman student Jose Benjamin Escobar ('18) provides ecological sound art. Since graduation, Ria has gone on to pursue a Master's in English, with a focus on Environmental Humanities, at the University of Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada.
