Event description: 

Yale Environmental Humanities will welcome back students, faculty and other affiliates with a panel discussion centered on the concept of “landscape.” The panel will kick off a thematic year of activities and programming, centered around this same theme. In this thematic year, we will host a variety of events, featuring scholars, artists, and thinkers at Yale and at other universities to probe the idea and the reality of landscape as it is used by artists, writers, theorists, even politicians to tell us something—and, importantly, to make us believe something—about our lives and ourselves. At the panel, Yale faculty members will present briefly on their work, as it relates to land, waters, and other built or natural environments, and human interactions with them.
Faculty panelists include:
Jonathan Howard (English, African American Studies)
Jill Jarvis (French)
Gerald Torres (YSE, Law)
Jane Tylus (Italian, Comparative Literature)
