An Anthropocene Primer emerged out of a workshop hosted by the IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute on May 16-20, 2017. Funded by the Wenner-Gren Foundation and the Indiana University New Frontiers in the Arts and Humanities Program, Anthropology of the Anthropocene: Structures, Theories, Practices brought together anthropologists and leading thinkers in policy, theory, philosophy, science, art, and the humanities who have been tackling the sociocultural frameworks and experiences of the Anthropocene. The goal of this workshop was to ask large interdisciplinary questions about Anthropology’s role in the Anthropocene.

Anthropology of the Anthropocene: Structures, Theories, Practices is part of the IAHI’s Rivers of the Anthropocene project, a research network of scientists, humanists, social scientists, artists, policy makers, and community organizers who examine global water systems in the Anthropocene.
