The Department of English presents Caroline Levine, David and Kathleen Ryan Professor of the Humanities at Cornell University, discussing her new book The Activist Humanist: Form and Method in the Climate Crisis (Princeton), out October 17. The book argues that large-scale, practical environmental activism should be integral to humanists’ work: ” Crisscrossing between art works and public works—from urban transportation to television series and from food security programs to rhyming couplets—Levine considers which forms might support stability and predictability in the face of growing precarity.”
