new MPhil in Anthropocene Studies

A new 11-month Master’s course studying, exploring and critiquing the idea of The Anthropocene

I shall be Course Director for this new MPhil in Anthropocene Studies from the Department of Geography which commences in October 2020. Applications are now being accepted.

The scale of the environmental and social challenges facing today’s world has grown enormously in recent decades, and will grow greater still in a world of scarce and unequal resources, growing population and unmet human development needs. The claim that we now live in The Anthropocene raises fundamental questions for and about humanity on a changing planet. This new 11-month programme of advanced study and research will allow students to understand the origins, claims and politics of The Anthropocene drawing upon the inter-disciplinary strengths of geographical thought, analysis and practice.
