演讲者简介:Terry Tempest Williams (born 8 September 1955), is an American author, conservationist, and activist. Williams writing is rooted in the American West and has been significantly influenced by the arid landscape of her native Utah and its Mormon culture. Her work ranges from issues of ecology and wilderness preservation, to womens health, to exploring our relationship to culture and nature.

In 2011, Williams received the 18th International Peace Award given by the Community of Christ.

 

 

            目:“The Inner Wilderness”

主讲人: Brooke Williams

时间:2017614日(周三)上午10:00-11:30

地点:明辨楼106教室

主办单位:首都经济贸易大学外国语学院   自然文学研究中心

演讲者简介: Brooke Williams  is the author of four published books, including Halflives: Reconciling Work and Wildness and Open Midnight: Where Ancestors and Wilderness Meet, which documents his exploration of where the inner and outer wilderness meet.

Brooke’s current work focuses on Awe, especially as it contributes to ‘pro-social’ behavior. And attempting to understand how the work of many good people contributes to the planet’s destruction rather than its protection. Brooke is an adventurer, of the outer wild world, but also the inner, unconscious world. A Jungian, at heart.

 

 

The language for these lectures is English and the content is mainly about ecocriticism and nature writing. All those who are interested in literary theories and American nature writing are welcome.
