We are excited to co-sponsor a lecture hosted by the UW Simpson Center for the Humanities, titled The Same River Twice: Ethics and Entities in the Anthropocene, by Etienne Turpin. Turpin is a research scientist from MIT who combines design, archival research, ​documentary, and ethnography to create knowledge infrastructure. Considering the ethical and epistemic consequences of residential life in the city—including dispositions toward nonhuman entities, mediations that enable collaboration and contestation, and contributions to postnatura​l ecologies—the presentation will explore concepts and concerns that arise in contemporary urban ecologies.
