Coastal Conversations: June 11, 2020

The Coasts, Climates, Humanities and the Environment Consortium is funded by a pilot grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for two years. Its partners are the University of Georgia, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Florida and Louisiana State University. The consortium has a series of site-specific and publicly engaged research projects in coastal sites, which look at questions of climate breakdown, community resilience and the capacity of the humanities to imagine the futures of places under threat from storms and sea-level rise.

This is the third in a series of conversations featuring participants in the consortium and scholars whose research informs its work.

The full conversation and a short preview are below.

The participants are:

Isaac Land, Indiana State University
Claire Connolly, University College Cork, Ireland
Willis Jenkins, University of Virginia
Nicholas Allen, moderator, University of Georgia
