University of Zürich

Debjani Bhattacharyya holds the chair for the history of the Anthropocene at the University of Zürich. Previously, she was an associate professor of history and urban studies at Drexel University. Her work lies at the intersection of legal and environmental history. Her research is driven by the desire to understand how legal and economic structures order our conceptualization of environmental transformations and shape how we respond to climate crises.
