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?

Last in a series of three workshops, which explore different kinds of narratives and how they portray fate, luck, fortune and agency. Historical and political narratives were discussed on Friday 31 March and Friday 7 July respectively.
