Community & Scholars- Roy Scranton with Amitav Ghosh

Roy Scranton with Amitav Ghosh

Community & Scholars Speaker Series

Roy Scranton, author of We’re Doomed. Now What?: Essays on War and Climate Change, joins novelist and essayist Amitav Ghosh in conversation at The Regulator Bookshop. Our moment is one of alarming and bewildering change – the breakup of the post-1945 global order, a multispecies mass extinction, and the beginning of the end of civilization as we know it. We’re Doomed. Now What? addresses the crisis that is our time through a series of essays on climate change, war, literature, and loss, from one of the most iconoclastic minds of his generation. Scranton handles his subjects with the same electric, philosophical touch he brought to his groundbreaking New York Times essay, “Learning How to Die in the Anthropocene.”

Free and open to the public. The Community & Scholars Speaker Series is co-sponsored by the Regulator Bookshop and the Forum for Scholars and Publics.
