Energy Humanities

Exploring visions of our energy future...

Throughout history, human society has been profoundly changed by the integration of new energy systems. From the adoption of fire as a means of gaining warmth to industrialization reshaping settlement patterns and changing social norms, energy’s impact has been far-reaching, and has required us to reimagine the ways we interact with each other and our environment.

Employing a full spectrum of disciplines from the arts and humanities, we can try to better envision what the next iteration of this evolution will look like, and to communicate about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
