Ethyle R. Wolfe Institute for the Humanities Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 Bibliography: Home

Land

The 2019-2020 theme for the Ethyle R. Wolfe Institute for the Humanities is "Land." The theme suggestion process was open to the entire Brooklyn College community, and LAND was chosen by an interdisciplinary faculty committee.

Land relates directly to issues resonating across contemporary scholarship in literary, historical, sociological, anthropological, archeological, ecological, and other areas of humanistic, social science, and scientific areas of study relevant to many Brooklyn College departments in and beyond the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.

We invite students and faculty to engage the idea of land broadly, including nations, indigenous studies, earth and other planets, maps and mapping, digital territories, landscapes, soil, and the verb to land, as in to arrive at a conclusion, as well as other manifestations.
