In almost every culture of the world, there is a myth of how once there was a time when humankind lived at one with the natural environment until a "fall" divided us from our earthly home. Distinguished critic professor Sir Jonathan Bate explores this idea, across centuries, cultures and artistic forms, and asks how it can help us our understand our current crisis of sustainability.
Biographer, broadcaster, critic, and Shakespearean, Sir Jonathan Bate is professor and provost of Worcester College, Oxford University in the U.K.
The first lecture in the series, "How the Humanities Can Save the Planet,” is the annual lecture of the ASU Environmental Humanities Initiative and part of Professor Bate’s spring 2019 ASU residency in the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, with support from the Department of English and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Other lectures in the series are "The End of the World as We Know It" (Feb. 5) and "Living Sustainably" (Feb. 20). Together, these lectures explore how humanities thought can help generate imaginative solutions to environmental concerns.

Webcast sponsored by the
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Author David Montgomery has discovered that the three-foot-deep skin of our planet is slowly being eroded away, with potentially devastating results. In this engaging lecture, Montgomery draws from his book 'Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations' to trace the role of soil use and abuse in the history of societies, and discuss how the rise of organic and no-till farming bring hope for a new agricultural revolution.
Just like organic material and bacteria can rebuild our soil, they can do the same for crude oil. Since this video was published, we know we aren't near peak oil at all.
"Peak oil", my ear. (Note how old this talk is. Fracking has re-invented the whole oil world since then).
I totally agree with Dr. Mongomery, , only ill go further and say that people such as him should be running things, and economics, needs to be flexible focusing on long term not short term gains, the current system of capitalism as it currently exists seem more interested in transferring land, wealth and power to the top one percent, is a horrible way of running things, forcing farmers to run their farms maximizing crop yields year and profits etc..simply wrong. The solutions are out there but we have the wrong people putting short term profit first. However since power us never never given up without as they put it compensated for their loss, i would say you have been robbing the land and people fir centuries it past time to change by giving the land and power back to those who care about the future. Thank you David for a great lecture on “Dirt”... very informiy educational... ?✌️
also, its incredible how concentrated his speaking is; im pretty sure he memorized it. which is incredible.
