Join the CHPS for the final event in the 2022-23 speaker series: “Public Humanities as Environmental Humanities." In this free, public talk, Nicholas Allen (University of Georgia, Department of English and Willson Center for Humanities and Art) will consider how the public and the environmental humanities together can prepare the ground, water, and atmosphere for modes of thinking that give shape to the answers we need to questions of social and environmental justice and climate catastrophe.

Nicholas Allen is the director of the Willson Center and holds a Professorship in Humanities in the department of English at UGA. He has published several books on Ireland and its literature, has been the Burns Visiting Scholar at Boston College, and has received many grants and awards, including from the Mellon Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Irish Research Council.
