Join us for an afternoon with Linda Tuhiwai Smith! This lecture kicks off a four-part OPT IDC speaker series which explores the following questions:

If environmental humanities attend to the histories and practices that have severed thought from place, cleaving culture from nature, how might this collaborative cluster for training future leaders in environmental humanities support practices that institute better relations?

How might we bring critical university studies into fresh dialogue with discourses of environment and ecology?

How can we engage with communities to work toward environmental justice in our local and connected spaces?

How can such a seminar series, and more broadly, a research cluster hosted by three colonial institutions, do meaningful restorative and anti-colonial work?
