As a strategic profiling area of the university, Biodiverse Anthropocenes encourages high-caliber research and top level-publications, both in and across disciplines, from all of its members. This autumn, we are celebrating six notable publications – monographs, edited volumes and journal special issues – which have just been released into the world by a number of our members.

Our catered Publication L(a)unch will be held from 10:00-12:00 on November 15 in the Agora space (AT 128) at Linnanmaa. Please join us in a group celebration of these new publications that speak to a wide range of topics and fields. We will also be raffling off copies of the books, with all guests eligible to win!
