Christine Eriksen's lecture for Lookout: Envisioning Futures with Wildfire
Everyone is invited to attend this live Zoom event with social geographer Christine Eriksen. In their recent book "Alliances in the Anthropocene: Fire, Plants, and People," Eriksen and art historian Susan Ballard examine how human impacts on the planetary system are being felt at all levels, from the geological and the arboreal to the atmospheric. In this talk, Eriksen will draw on case studies from the book to examine the agency of fire, plants, and people within a changing climate.

Christine Eriksen is a Senior Researcher with the Risk and Resilience Team at the Center for Security Studies at the Swiss Federal Institute for Technology. With a particular interest in social dimensions of disasters, her widely published and award-winning research has focused on case studies in multiple countries and continents, including Australia, North America, Europe, and Africa. Christine gained international research recognition by bringing human geography, social justice, and environmental hazards into dialogue.

"Lookout: Envisioning Futures with Wildfire" is an 11-week series exploring how we are shaping this era of megafires and how it is shaping us. Speakers from across the arts, humanities, and environmental sciences will help us scan the horizon for the ideas and stories that can guide us through this critical and disorienting time.

Talks in the series will be broadcast live on Zoom Tuesdays at 6 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. EST from January 4 to March 15. Learn more and register for other talks here: https://bit.ly/3lHTlex

This series is hosted by the Spring Creek Project and the Environmental Arts and Humanities Initiative at Oregon State University (OSU) and co-sponsored by OSU's Arts and Education Complex, OSU's Center for the Humanities, OSU's Sustainability Office, and Terrain.org. Eriksen's lecture is also co-sponsored by Corvallis-Benton County Public Library and Grass Roots Books & Music.
