Event Description

Agustin Fuentes, professor of anthropology, will present “Multispecies Mutual Ecologies: People and Primates Recasting the Anthropocene Dynamic” in Guyot Hall, Room 10, and online via Zoom. Fuentes is the second speaker in the fall 2022 HMEI Faculty Seminar Series.

Human-driven responses to current climate and ecological crises are many and varied and, in some instances, do more harm than good. Fuentes will draw on biocultural, ethnographic, demographic and ecological examples to argue for a more inclusive, integrative, and transdisciplinary approach to addressing planetary challenges that decenters mainstream human ecological tactics and recognizes multispecies mutual ecologies to evolve more optimistic views for the future.
