Join two leading scholars at the cutting edge of environmental humanities for a conversation about intersectional and transnational approaches to ecological work.

Co-sponsored by the Critical Disability Studies Collective; the Center for Race, Indigeneity, Disability, Gender & Sexuality Studies (RIDGS); Environmental Humanities Initiative; Department of Anthropology; and Department of Geography.
