Meeting Room 370, Level 3, Social Sciences Building, University of Sydney


After a memorable 2018 series, Reading Environments returns to extend our discussion of key concerns in the Environmental Humanities.

Our first four meetings of the new year engage diverse matters and diverse methods, in Australian and international contexts. Aesthetics, fiction, ethics, the plastic arts, ecofeminism, photography, environmental education, and radical hope: these and more will intermingle in manners productively conversant, and productively discordant.

Reading Environments is sponsored by the Sydney Environment Institute, and as always, we welcome attendees from all fields and academic levels, from within and beyond the University of Sydney. We hope you’ll join us.

This month: Feminist Ecologies

Proposed Readings:

1. Eva Giraud, Greg Hollin, Tracey Potts and Isla Forsyth, “a feminist menagerie,” feminist review 118.1 (2018): 61-79.
