‘Humanature’ Exhibition Launch, National English Literary Museum

The launch of a new exhibition, ‘Humanature,’ by the National English Literary Museum. ‘Humanature’ explores the ways in which South African literature expresses the complex relationship between humanity and nature. In this time of ecological crisis, many writers represent humanity within the natural systems in which all life is entangled, and consider human responsibilities towards those systems.

As a Green Museum, the National English Literary Museum recognises that the deep links between culture and nature are sources of the ecological crisis we face today, as well as sources of potential solutions to this great challenge. The ‘Humanature’ exhibition will be at the centre of a programme of interdisciplinary activities that will encourage positive social-ecological change, for the benefit of both the people and the environment of South Africa.

The speaker for the launch evening will be Distinguished Professor Heila Lotz-Sisitka of Rhodes University, the SARChI Chair: Global Change and Social Learning Systems at the Environmental Learning Research Centre.



Tuesday 23 October, 2018. 18:00 for 18:30.
