Guest Speaker: Vinny Ialenti (9/18)

This Thursday the anthropologist Vincent Ialenti will be joining our class. Come in thinking shape: that means awake and with prepared questions and points of discussion. He is planning to give us a short presentation of his research on 'deep time' in Finland.

I have already assigned one of Ialient's short articles, but I also suggest that you read his most recent piece, published as part of NPR's Cosmos & Culture' series just this past weekend. In it he briefly addresses the question of the Anthropocene.
