Energy & Envrionment Forum

Narrating the Anthropocene, or, Learning to Live with the Trickster

Thursday, March 1 | 1:00 to 2:30 pm | Toyota Auditorium

Dr. Robin Craig, is the James I. Farr Professor of Law at the University of Utah.


The stories we tell ourselves about our relationship to nature matter. This talk derives from my new book with Melinda Harm Benson, The End of Sustainability: Resilience and the Future of Environmental Governance in the Anthropocene and will explore both the failed narratives of the past and the promise of resilience theory and a trickster cultural narrative for natural resources management in the future.
