Bonnitta Roy will offer a lecuture at the Dodd Center’s Kovover Auditorium on November 19, from 3:30-5:00. The talk is titled: How the Anthropocene is Changing Our Minds: How escalating complexity, exponential technology and existential risk are driving mutations in human consciousness. The Anthropocene defines Earth’s most recent geologic time period as being human influenced, or anthropogenic, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biosphereic and other earth systems are now altered by humans. Bonnitta will illuminate how our minds are changing in response to the continuous pressures of this new epoch, the Anthropocene, inviting us to reconsider our relationship to our present moment and the possibilities for cultivating a generative way forward.
