HON 301: Welcome to the Anthropocene

Fall 2021

F.M. Walter



Since the discovery of agriculture, we humans have been running a largely uncontrolled experiment that involves the future of humanity and perhaps the future inhabitability of Earth.
The Anthropocene is this time during which humans have made a lasting impact on the Earth.
In this class we shall examine the results of this on-going experiment, and discuss implications for the future of humanity.
