1. The Fennell Forum: History and the Climate Crisis
9 November 2021: Join us for a special online event during COP26 to explore the relationship between the study of history and climate change. This virtual forum will explore the effect of climate change on the future study of history and, with data suggesting that the humanities are in crisis on both sides of the Atlantic, the role the humanities and history in particular, could play in the face of dramatic climate and environmental change.
