The Department of Classics (University of Nottingham) and the Department of History (University of Liverpool) present ‘Fate, luck and fortune: narratives of environmental risk’. How do we talk about the risks of our environment? Who do we blame when things go wrong?
Second in a series of three workshops, which will explore different kinds of narratives and how they portray fate, luck, fortune and agency. Popular narratives will be discussed on Friday 8 September, and historical narratives were explored on Friday 31 March.
