Almost every aspect of human experience is shaped by “death anxiety,” a concept crystallized in recent decades by scholars and scientists exploring “Terror Management Theory” – none more so than Skidmore psychologist Sheldon Solomon.

Here we look at the pandemic experience and society’s Anthropocene options in this context with Sheldon Solomon, Anthropocene analyst Simon Dalby, emerging scholars Katie Kish and Norman Kearney, and the playwright Karen Malpede, whose recent works focus on personal and societal challenges facing extreme climatic and biological futures. Also on hand is Susi Moser, who for decades has worked to build community and practitioner resilience in regions facing rapid climate change.
