Event description: 

The Literature, Arts, & the Environment Colloquium presents a panel discussion “Curating the Environment: Conceptions of nature in museums and archives” Friday, December 4 at 4 pm EST. 

How has our collective understanding of the environment been shaped by cultural production? And how do works of art, literature, and design continue to inform how we interact with nature? In this panel, which spans time periods and genres, we invite curators and archivists to discuss how notions of the environment have been created, curated, and indeed cultivated by creatives and experts alike. Panelists include: 

Yota Batsaki, Executive Direction at Dumbarton Oaks

Anna Burkhardt, Curatorial Assistant at MoMA

Chitra Ramalingam, Associate Curator of Photography and the Yale Center for British Art
