John Ruskin, the Victorian social thinker credited with foreseeing climate change, established the Guild of St. George in 1871. He set up this utopian body with the aim of restoring the link between art and craft, social wealth, and natural abundance. Clive Wilmer, current Guild Master in the United Kingdom, will lecture on Ruskin’s ecological vision and his own current work.

Clive Wilmer is Emeritus Fellow in English at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. He edited Unto this Last and Other Writings by John Ruskin and News from Nowhere and Other Writings by William Morris for Penguin Classics. He is the author of several books of poetry, including New and Collected Poems (Carcanet, 2012) and Urban Pastorals (Worple, 2014). He has just completed a five-month stint as Visiting Professor at Ca’ Foscari University, Venice.
