We welcome pioneering environmental philosopher Glenn Albrecht to Chicago and DePaul.
Professor Albrecht investigates the positive and negative psychological, emotional and cultural relationships people have to place. Albrecht coined the now widely used term “solastalgia” which names the human distress related to the lived experience of familiar places negatively altered by environmental change.
He will give an informal seminar and discussion on Tuesday, May 27th, 2014 From 3:30 – 5:00 PM McGowan S Rm 204 (http://www.depaul.edu/campus-maps/buildings/Pages/mcgowan-south.aspx)
Albrecht’s TED talk is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GUGW8rOpLY
The seminar is free and open to the public.
