Germanics faculty member Jason Groves, together with collaborator Jesse Oak Taylor (English), have wrapped up a successful first quarter of their year-long Simpson Center-funded interdisciplinary research cluster on the Anthropocene. This cluster brought together a wide range of faculty and graduate students for multiple events, including a lecture and seminar on “Late Holocene Poetics" by Tobias Menely (Associate Professor, English, University of California Davis), as well as a field trip with legendary Seattle eco-artist Buster Simpson to the future site of his “Anthropocene Beach” public artwork, as part of the Elliott Bay Seawall Project. Check out the Research Cluster’s website for upcoming events (https://simpsoncenter.org/projects/anthropocene) or write to Jason Groves (jagroves@uw.edu) to be added to the group’s mailing list.
