About The Event
How did the modern environmental movement in the west emerge, and what relation does this have to race? Helping us to unpack these questions is Prakash Kashwan, a leading voice in the field of political economy of institutions, environmental politics, and global climate governance. We'll take a close look at environmental movements, what they were designed to address and how they measure up to their intended outcomes. We'll get to the central question: how do we get to an anti-racist environmentalism? Join us for a lively discussion connecting a local and global context towards new ecologies.
All ages welcome.
Guest: Prakash Kashwan is Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Connecticut, Storrs. He is the author of Democracy in the Woods: Environmental Conservation and Social Justice in India, Tanzania, and Mexico (Oxford University Press, 2017).
