About the Event

We know that we are in the midst of a planetary ecological crisis, but what is the planetary? What role has culture played in the history of Earth and planetary science? How have different media contributed to seeing worlds, both new ones and our own?

Join us for a conversation with Katherine Buse, postdoctoral researcher at the University of Chicago’s Institute on the Formation of Knowledge, to explore how planets have been shared between science, society, and the arts in the twentieth century.
