Anthropocene Working Group

MISSION

The Anthropocene Working Group is an interdisciplinary network of researchers who conduct collaborative research, teaching, and outreach on the Anthropocene, a newly proposed geologic epoch representing the age in which human activities have induced shifts in the state and functioning of the Earth system that threaten environmental, social, and economic crises on global to local scales. Faculty in the working group represent the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering, and the Patel College of Global Sustainability.
