Upcoming Events

Anthropocene Campus Philadelphia (ACP)

October 22, 2017 through October 26, 2017
Location TBA

The "Anthropocene" is the geologic age in which human industrial activity provides the dominant force shaping the Earth and its environment. As an inquiry, the Anthropocene serves as a fruitful meeting ground for interdisciplinary exploration. Researchers interested in technology, science, and the environment have particularly relevant skills in this regard, taking as they do a highly contextualized and critical view of technological determinism, and with their tools for tracing out material and social trends over long stretches of time. This meeting — building on the success of the Anthropocene Campus meetings in Berlin (2014-2019) — will explore the Anthropocene in the setting of Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley. The meeting will be timed to precede the annual meeting of the Society for the History of Technology (scheduled in Philadelphia, October 26-29, 2017).
