John Muir's Trail at UC San Diego

Submitted by Kimon

Symposium: After the West—Rethinking John Muir’s Trail

Please join us for a special symposium as part of UC San Diego’s John Muir College 50th Anniversary Celebration.

What is the role of John Muir today? In a time where environmentalism has never been more widespread and, yet, more necessary, can his thought still shape our debates and politics?

On April 23, 2018, Muir’s birthday and Earth Day, some of the world’s foremost interpreters of his work and major figures of the environmental humanities debate will address these topics and questions, as they provide new insights into the legacy of this extraordinary figure.

The symposium will be held in the Village 15B room, and will be open to the public from 10–12pm and 2–4pm (space will be closed from 12–2pm for a closed working lunch). Space is limited in this room, allowing for a more intimate discussion.
