Ursula K. Le Guin: Anthropocene – Arts of Living on a Damaged Planet


On May 8, 2014, the Humanities Institute held a multi-day conference seeking to understand if humans and other species can continue to inhabit the earth together. Through noticing, describing, and imagining, participants aim to renew conversation about life on earth.

Ursula LeGuin is the author of over thirty novels, children’s books, and short story, poetry and essay collections, mainly in the genres of fantasy and science fiction. LeGuin’s work includes the Earthsea and Hainish Cycle novels and short fiction; The Unreal and the Real: Selected Stories; Finding My Elegy: New and Selected Poems; and The Catwings Collection
