AURA Opening
Welcome to the Anthropocene, that epoch in which human disturbance of the earth’s environment exceeds even that of glaciers. Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene (AURA) brings together the arts and the sciences to ask what kinds of life we find on human-disturbed landscapes. Our opening conference explores what is possible across species—and across disciplinary divides.
