Description: Please join us for the final installment of this year's Environmental Law and Policy Program lecture series. Jedidiah Purdy, the Robinson O. Everett Professor of Law at Duke University, will provide a preview of his next book, After Nature: A Politics for the Anthropocene. Professor Purdy is perhaps best known for his first book, For Common Things: Irony, Trust and Commitment in America Today, which he wrote at the tender age of 24. He “writes at the intersection of law and social and political thought” with a keen interest in our relationship to nature.

This lecture will be immediately followed by a reception. This event is free and open to the public.

This lecture is co-sponsored by CLOSUP, the Erb Institute, the Graham Sustainability Institute, the Program in the Environment, the Energy Institute, the Risk Science Center, and the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
