REGISTER NOW

Climate infowhelm is the experience of feeling overwhelmed by too much information about the environmental crisis. Heather Houser will discuss how infowhelm feels, sounds, and looks in various media and how contemporary art manages environmental knowledge and provides new ways of understanding environmental change. Audience Q&A will follow.

Heather Houser is Professor of English at the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author of Ecosickness in Contemporary U.S. Fiction: Environment and Affect (2014), Infowhelm: Environmental Art and Literature in an Age of Data (2020), as well as numerous academic and public articles.
