Event Details
Friday, March 29, 3:00-5:00 pm | Houghton Library, Edison and Newman Room

The Victorian polymath John Ruskin (1819-1900) was among the earliest to recognize the threat posed by industrial and anthropogenic pollutants to the natural world. On the bicentenary of Ruskin’s birth, Houghton Library hosts an interdisciplinary colloquium focusing on his prophetic concern for the environment and its continued relevance today.
