Webinar: Sahara Haze: Climate, Wind and the Ocean of Sand
Tuesday, 05 October 2021, 6:00
The Sahara Desert is critical to the balance of ecosystems from the Atlantic Gulf Stream to the Brazilian Rainforests. It is also a swiftly transforming materiality of the biosphere connecting the Mediterranean and North Africa to the North American troposphere. Drawing on the history of the Harmattan Wind, and autobiography, this talk explores why we should care about sand. Joseph explores the ethics and aesthetics of sand, and its relational import on hurricanes, oceans and biodiversity.
