This is the second seminar of four from our Centre for Sustainable Transitions 'Environmental Humanities' Series.

Coming down off fossils fuels usually raises the question ‘how else should we power our lives’? But if we are going to turn away from exhuming and burning fossilized hydrocarbons, we might also ask what else could we do with the subsurface and what else can be done with fire?

In this talk, I draw on ideas from Anthropocene science to think about the role human use of fire has played both in transforming the surface of the Earth and in venturing underground. - Prof Nigel Clark is Professor of Human Geography at Lancaster University. His research looks at how social life is shaped and perturbed by physical forces.
