Bird Library, 114

Kameshwar C. Wali Lecture in the Sciences and Humanities for 2019

Presented by Robin Wall Kimmerer (SUNY ESF)

As distinguished guest lecturer for this annual Physics / Humanities Center partnership, author-scholar Kimmerer critically examines the notion of serving “We the People” as the foundation of environmental protection. Who are those People? What does it mean to be a person? She explores the indigenous concepts of personhood and reciprocity as a means to expand the circle of citizenship to include justice for the land.  All are welcome.

Co-sponsored by the departments of Art & Music Histories, Biology, Religion, and Women’s & Gender Studies.
