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?
