"(Um)weltschmertz: An Exercise in Humility and Melancholia" is the final project event of the ENHANCE international training network. The event explores the deep ties that connect humans and their cultural and emotional lives to the changing environment around issues of environmental change and conflict, as well as the role of the environmental humanities in times of crisis.
There will be several public events as part of the program, including public lectures, a film screening, and an exhibition.
The event also includes a workshop for late-stage doctoral students and early-stage researchers on "Turning a Doctoral Dissertation into a Book." The call for proposals for this workshop can be found here.
