Authored by: 
GTU Sustainability 360

While on sabbatical and as part of a fellowship as Visiting Professor of Religion & Literature at the Humboldt University of Berlin, GTU Sustainability 360 Co-Chair Dr. Devin Zuber has organized an environmental humanities workshop featuring a group of international scholars from the environmental humanities, religion & theology, as well as cultural & literary studies, to collectively discuss a set of questions and challenges provoked by the unfolding environmental crisis.

The workshop is titled "The Body, Religion, and Planetary Imagination in a Time of Environmental Crisis" and will take place May 20, 2022 at the Humboldt University of Berlin in Germany. The workshop is open to the broader public and learning communities of the Humboldt University; as space is limited, persons interested in attending are asked to register in advance Dr. Zuber (devinzuber@gmail.com) in order to reserve a place and gain access to advance workshop materials. The workshop also features the opportunity to experience an "inverted virtual reality" artwork, "Symphony of a Missing Room," created by the artists Christer Lundahl and Martina Seitl, who are also participating in the workshop.

In addition to Dr. Zuber and the artists Christer Lundahl and Martina Seitl, presenters include Dr. Whitney Bauman (Florida International University, USA), Dr. Kocku von Stuckrad (University of Groningen, Netherlands), Dr. Martina Bengert (Humboldt University of Berlin), Dr. Jonathan Kavusa (Humboldt University of Berlin / Universite Libre des Pays des Grand Lacs, Goma / DR Congo), Dr. Bron Taylor (University of Florida, USA / Rachel Carson Center, LMU), and more.
