Mitigation as Method

This one-day workshop builds on the premise that it can be generative to engage with the conceptual contours of “mitigation” as a template of climate solution. The workshop will engage with mitigation not just as an object of analysis, but, speculatively, as an episteme that can generate its own conceptual frameworks and questions.  

This is a daylong workshop, hosted in Philadelphia, on April  28, 2022. Programming begins at 9:30am and will conclude at 6:00pm EDT. Meals will also be provided according to current University COVID-19 guidelines. For participants who wish to join us online, we have made provisions to integrate the in-person space with the virtual. For those joining us in-person, guests will need to complete a PennOpen Campus Screening and provide proof of vaccination prior to or upon arrival.  Face masks must be worn.
