Discovering the Potential of Unintentional Design on Anthropogenic Landscapes

About

The Anthropocene is a new geologic epoch, defined by unprecedented human disturbance of the earth’s ecosystems.

Applying insights and methods from anthropology, biology and philosophy Aarhus University Research on The Anthropocene (AURA) aims to open up a novel and truly trans-disciplinary field of research into the Anthropocene which is needed to understand the kinds of lives that are made and the futures that are possible in the ruined, re-wilded, and unintended landscapes of the Anthropocene.
