Climate Change and the Art of Memory

October 9, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Now that climate change threatens mankind with extinction,we’re starting to mourn ourselves and the world through novels including Maggie Gee’s The Ice People and The Flood. But why do we forget to alter our behaviour? What role does art have to play in creating ecological awareness? Join novelist Maggie Gee, Professor of Climate Change Mike Hulme, eco-critic Greg Garrard and philosopher Claire Colebrook for a fascinating discussion of the many roles memory plays in understanding our disappearing future.

This event is organised by AHRC Science in Culture Research Network: The Memory Network and is taking place as part of the Cheltenham Festival.
