The Anthropocene: Multidisciplinary Approaches

On May 21, 2019 the Anthropocene Working Group, an group formed by the Subcommission on Quarternary Stratigraphy and the International Commission on Stratigraphy, voted 29-4 that the “Anthropocene” should be treated as a formal chrono-stratigraphic unit beginning in the mid-twentieth century. Given this decision and the popularity of the “Anthropocene” in environmental discussions, eight Creighton faculty will gather to discuss what the Anthropocene means in their discipline.

The schedule of the symposium, including the titles of the presentations, can be found here.

The symposium will take place Friday, April 3, in Skutt Student Center 105, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
