Timothy Morton: “This Is Hell, It’s Not the End of the World”

Organized in conjunction with the exhibition “Santiago Sierra: 52 Canvases Exposed to Mexico City’s Air,” Timothy Morton, Rita Shea Guffey Chair in English at Rice University and director of the Cool America Foundation, will give a talk to celebrate the publication of their new book “Hell: In Search of a Christian Ecology” (Columbia University Press, 2024), which explores the relationship between religion and ecology in response to the climate crisis. Morton is the author of several books that bring together politics, art, and ecological studies to better understand how we coexist with one another and with non-humans.

A book signing will follow the talk. Purchase Hell: In Search of a Christian Ecology in the Museum Shop.

Free and open to the public. Registration is requested.

This event is co-sponsored by WashU’s Center for Humanities and is part of the Sam Fox School Public Lecture Series.

American Sign Language interpretation can be arranged for public events upon request. This service is free, but we ask for two weeks’ notice. Requests can be made by contacting kempereducation@wustl.edu
