April 10
6:00 – 7:30 pm
Academic Learning Commons, Room 1201

Carolyn Finney, Assistant Professor of Environmental Science, Policy & Management, University of California-Berkeley
“Crying the Bones, Singing the Bones: Environmental History, Race and Dreaming into the Future”

Dr. Finney will discuss how much we have in the “bones” of our past related to the environment and race that we mourn, but also that we celebrate. She suggests that in this tension between “crying and singing” we find generative possibilities for science, sustainability and what she calls “radical imaginings.”
This talk is co-sponsored by the Department of African-American Studies and Department of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies.
