The CCA presents Toolkit 2016, a two-week summer seminar for PhD candidates from around the world, devoted to “Keywords for the Environment.” We invited four scholars coming from different disciplines—architecture history, environmental humanities, media studies and landscape architecture—to present key concepts of contemporary debates.
The first Toolkit 2016 presentation is by Ashley Dawson, on Resilience. Ashley Dawson is a Professor of English at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center, and the author of Extinction. A Radical History (2016). He specializes in the fields of cultural studies, environmental humanities and post-colonial studies.
