Saxbe Auditorium, Moritz College of Law

The colloquium: Nature, Morality, and Law in the Anthropocene is part of the COMPAS sustainability series and is co-sponsored by the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity and the Center for Interdisciplinary Law and Policy Studies. 'The anthropocene' is an informal geologic chronological term for the proposed epoch that began when human activities had a significant global impact on the Earth's ecosystems. Professors Sarah Krakoff (Law, Colorado) and Jedediah Purdy (Law, Duke) will discuss the implications of the anthropocene era for law and morality. The discussion will be moderated by Professor Cinnamon Carlarne (Law, Ohio State).
