What role can comics and other forms of literary-visual art play in our conversations about the environment? This talk by Thomas Doran, assistant professor, Rhode Island School of Design, explores how comics-art functions as a unique medium for telling stories about how humans and other animals relate to their environments, focusing especially on the form’s capacity for representing time, space, and interspecies consciousness. Doran also discusses the role artists play in expanding our understanding of the cultural dimensions of environmental crisis. Sponsored by the Environmental Studies Program.
