— On Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m., Bill Conlogue, PhD, will present his lecture “This is water: Climate Change and the Environmental Humanities."

Come to the Rowley Center for Science and Engineering, room 112, for a description and discussion on this very timely topic.

The lecture presentation is free and open to the public.

“A dire threat to life on Earth, climate change calls on us to rethink interrelationships among person, place, and planet," Conlogue said. "The environmental humanities can help us to see these connections anew. Using water as a touchstone, I raise issues related to time, energy, and our responsibilities to future generations.”

Conlogue holds a B.A. and M.A. from University of Scranton, and a Ph.D, from the University of Maryland.

He is a professor of English at Marywood University in Scranton, Pa., and his interests include Environmental Literature, Rural Studies and 19th and 20th Century American Literature.

Conlogue is the author of three books: "Here and There: Reading Pennsylvania's Working Landscapes," "Undermined in Coal Country and Working the Garden: American Writers and the Industrialization of Agriculture."

A book signing will take place following the presentation.

EssentialsThe Rowley Center for Science and Engineering is located at 10 East Conkling Avenue on the Middletown campus of SUNY Orange.

Free parking can be found on street and in several college parking lots as well as the parking garage across the street.

Questions may be directed to Cultural Affairs at (845)341-4891 and cultural@sunyorange.edu. Also, online at www.sunyorange.edu/culturalaffairs.

Environmental humanities

Environmental humanities offer a forum for an interdisciplinary approach to environmental and ecological issues.
The key word is interdisciplinary because it seeks to help bridge traditional divides between the sciences and the humanities, and between Western, Eastern and Indigenous ways of knowing the natural world and the place of humans in it.
Such disciplines as cultural studies, history, literary studies, philosophy, and anthropology engage the natural sciences in discussion, deliberation, and the enhancement of knowledge to offer a world view.
