Educating for the Anthropocene: Book Launch and Q&A


In this event, Peter Sutoris, an environmental anthropologist and Assistant Professor in Education at the University of York, UK, will introduce his new book Educating for the Anthropocene (The MIT Press, 2022) and answer any questions participants might have about the book's arguments and the research behind it.

More about the book:

Education has never played as critical a role in determining humanity's future as it does in the Anthropocene, an era marked by humankind's unprecedented control over the natural environment. Drawing on a multisited ethnographic project among schools and activist groups in India and South Africa, Peter Sutoris explores education practices in the context of impoverished, marginal communities where environmental crises intersect with colonial and racist histories and unsustainable practices. He exposes the depoliticizing effects of schooling and examines cross-generational knowledge transfer within and beyond formal education. Finally, he calls for the bridging of schooling and environmental activism, to find answers to the global environmental crisis.
