  • 1 hour 30 minutes

Online talks with equal time for Q&A: Thomas Nail, Christine J. Winter, Romy Opperman, Dipesh Chakrabarty, & Malcom Ferdinand. Ananya Dasgupta will introduce the speaker. All are welcome. These discussions are meant to be serious, open to newcomers, warm, and thoughtful. The idea is to bring imaginative and probing thought to bear on the topic areas of the series, emphasizing what the humanities and social sciences can bring to how we think about global warming, and linking some of the most important social justice topics that affect Northeast Ohio to environmental change. Think of the series not as applied work, nor as policy advocacy, but as addressing upstream assumptions and uncovering wider context. Sponsored by Case Western Reserve University: Departments of Philosophy, History, Political Science; Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences; the Environmental Studies Major, the Office of Sustainability, the Social Justice Institute, the Swetland Center for Environmental Health in the School of Medicine, and the Dean's Office of the College of Arts and Sciences.
