With Professor Joseph Henderson and Stephanie Morningstar.

As the world grapples with climate breakdown and democratic backsliding, we are again witnessing a rise in far-right political violence in the name of environmental sustainability and white supremacy.

This event features two scholars in conversation on the settler colonial and capitalist roots of the crisis, how they root themselves in place to understand the long histories and structures that allow ecofascism to flourish, and how to create radical, solidaristic educational projects that produce more joy and less suffering in the world.

Stephanie Morningstar is Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) with ancestors rooted in Six Nations of the Grand River Territory and Europe. She is a plant nerd, medicine tender, bridge builder, soil and seed steward, scholar, student, and Earth Worker dedicated to embodying her decolonial values through the practice of biocultural Re-story-ation.

Joseph Henderson is an Associate Professor of Social Sciences in the Department of Environment and Society at Paul Smith’s College of the Adirondacks. He is trained as an anthropologist of environmental and science education, and his research investigates how sociocultural, political, and geographic factors influence teaching and learning about climate change.
