Activism, Justice, and Future Generations

April 11, 7:00 PM

Free

Our speaker, Winona LaDuke, is this year’s Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Fellow in Environmental Humanities. LaDuke is an internationally renowned writer and activist working on issues of climate change, sustainable development, and the rights of indigenous communities. She lives and works on the White Earth Reservation in northern Minnesota and is a two-time vice presidential candidate with Ralph Nader for the Green Party.

The Environmental Humanities Initiative at Colby is supported by a major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This initiative builds on the College’s strengths in the study of the arts, the humanities, and the environment with the goal of inspiring innovative interdisciplinary opportunities and collaborations at the intersection of these fields. Faculty and students across the humanistic and environmental disciplines will be empowered to apply artistic, cultural, ethical, historical, and literary perspectives in a collective exploration of pressing questions concerning the environment through interdisciplinary research, teaching, and learning.
