Description

2016-2017 Penn Humanities Forum on Translation

University of Pennsylvania



Conference Keynote Address for An Ecotopian Toolkit for the Anthropocene

How might we translate natural and manmade disasters into opportunities for changed states of mind infused with utopian hope? This is one of the challenging questions Rebecca Solnit poses in her recent work. Eclectic, brilliant, widely celebrated, Solnit is an inspiration for people around the world. In her keynote address at the Penn Humanities Forum, she will speak to the broad concerns of this week’s conference—art, environment, utopia—drawing on her own highly distinctive toolkit as an author, activist, historian, and artist.
