Carolyn M. Finney, writer, performer, and assistant professor of geography at the University of Kentucky, will speak on “All Things Considered: Black Faces, White Spaces and Dreaming a Green Future,” on Thursday, March 8, at 5 p.m. in the Traditional Reading Room of Bertrand Library. The event is free and open to the public.
Finney will discuss what happens in the U.S. where race, history, memory and land are contested spaces and the “environment,” as an idea, emerges as a reflection of power, privilege, and a set of practices that can determine who belongs and who doesn’t.
This lecture is the third of four in the series on “Humanizing Sustainability: Reframing and Integrating Knowledge Across Disciplines” hosted by the Bucknell Humanities Center.
Professor Finney will also be leading a “Methods and Munchies” lunchtime discussion of her work, jointly sponsored by the Center for Social Science Research and the Bucknell Humanities Center, on Thursday, March 8, from 12 noon-1:30 p.m. in the Willard-Smith Library.
