About Research Seminars:
This research seminar will welcome researchers from all disciplines to present their work as a contribution to the understanding of the contemporary Anthropocene situation. We will explore the links between urbanization and five major mutations: global warming, the biodiversity crisis, resource extinction, changes in the "metabolisms" of biotic systems, and relations to the social dimensions of urban life.
