Does it make sense anymore to speak of the environment, singular —or of a singular humanity, given the world’s diversity and inequity? As we better appreciate the radical interdependence of humans with places, substances, and other beings, even our settled ideas about the nature of political and historical agency may no longer be of help to us. This symposium brings together humanists and social scientists to rethink environmentalisms in response to individuals, communities, and species whose needs conflict as much as converge in unequal landscapes of vulnerability and care.
