– We are Generation Anthropocene, Robert Macfarlane says, but argues that our need for change seems to greatly exceed our capacity to exert it.

April 6 2017 writer and scholar Robert Macfarlane gave the talk Deep Time, Thin Place And Thick Speech in the Anthropocene at Litteraturhuset in Oslo.

Macfarlane was invited, and the talk was organised by, the CAS research group After Discourse: Things, Archaeology, and Heritage in the 21st Century.
