Joe Trumpey Serves on Humanities & Environments Faculty Panel
February 15, 2019
Stamps Professor Joe Trumpey is a panelist for “Animals and Capture,” a Humanities & Environments Faculty Panel on February 19 from 4 – 5:30 at the Institute for the Humanities, Osterman Common Room #1022. Trumpey will be joined by Antoine Traisnel (comparative literature, English) and Bénédicte Boisseron (Afroamerican and African studies).
During our 2018 – 19 Year of Humanities and Environments, we’ve organized faculty panels to explore contributions of humanistic inquiry around specific environmental subjects. Today: “Animals and Capture.” U‑M faculty explore the concept of capture in relation to animals: how do we represent animals and animality, and what meanings do captures of animals — in images, in texts, in concepts — convey?
