Faculty of Arts at Home 16 - Environmental Issues: The "Year of Misery": Ecological grief in the Safaitic inscriptions of Ancient Northern Arabia
Hear from Dr Eris Williams Reed (Classics and Ancient History) about her work on the history of the Roman Near East and ancient communities’ interaction with the environment. Eris looks for expressions of environmental loss and ecological grief in the Safaitic inscriptions of Northern Arabia and uncovers the precarious, volatile and fragile relationship that some people in the ancient world had with their environment.
Study buddies is a [currently virtual] programme delivered by the Arts Faculty. The programme provides a space where students can write, read and work on their assessments in a supportive working environment.
At each Study Buddies session an academic will be on hand to provide support and guidance with assessments, read excerpts of your work, help you to understand feedback and be a mock audience for presentations. You can also find out where to go for more specialist support, such as academic writing, digital proficiency or employability skills.
Hear from Dr Pietari Kaapa (Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies) about his work on the relationship between media and climate change. Pietari asks us to think here about the environmental impact of the production of our media and reports on the work of the Global Green Media Production Network.
