Stanford Campus
Palo Alto, California

This conference will bring together scholars from the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences to explore the different histories and techniques of representing the environment on a global scale, and discuss the rights and responsibilities?individual and collective?that derive from this knowledge. In additon, this conference will reach beyond disciplinary specificity to interrogate the very ways we figure the natural world, and the consequences of these figurations for our actions in the global environment.

Conference speakers include: Lawrence Buell, Elinor Ostrom, Michael Pollan, Harriet Ritvo, and Candace Slater. Conference sessions on Thursday (11/09)afternoon and all day Friday (11/10).

All sessions free and open to the public.
