Please join us for Cultures of Energy iX: New Directions in Energy Humanities! On May 27-28, 2021, Rice's Center for Environmental Studies hosts the 9th Cultures of Energy symposium, marking a decade of conversations about energy from the point of view of humanists, artists, and social scientists.

This year we’re featuring the voices of emerging scholars in sessions organized on: Envisioning a Warming World, Emergent Ethnographies of Energy, and Energy Justice. We’ll also hold a plenary roundtable with scholars who have helped establish the field, a book event, and a roundtable on publishing for broader publics to mark the launch of our center’s new publication Correspondences.

All panels will be held virtually via Zoom. Please find the schedule and Zoom pre-registration links here:

All times are CDT. Sessions will be recorded and available for asynchronous viewing.
