This unique three-day summit of scholars and experts from across the country features a dynamic intersection between discussion, presentations, and exhibitions, grounded in practical site excursions. The summit is being convened by Robert D. Newman, founder of the first Environmental Humanities graduate program in the U.S., and current director of the National Humanities Center. Confirmed presenters include scholars, teachers, students, scientists, community leaders, activists, and artists in an effort to build bridges between the global and the local. The list of participants is impressive and speaks to the timeliness and importance of this discussion.


Beyond Despair is presented with the generous support of RTI International.
