Environmental Humanities Brown Bag Sessions


"Environmental Humanities Brown Bag Sessions" written on a textured brown bag.

These sessions are intended as opportunities for members of the Penn community to share environmental humanities related works-in-progress in an informal environment, and to help build the EH scholarly community on the Penn campus.

All sessions will be held Wednesdays from 12:30 - 1:30 PM in the Humanities Conference Room in Williams Hall, Room 623, unless otherwise specified. Bring a lunch and join us!
