Eco-Feminism and Climate Change

Wednesday, March 27, 7:00pm - Keynote Speaker Dr. Chris Cuomo, "Eco-Feminism and Climate Change".  Climate change is a suite of problems that calls for serious and sustained attention not only to social and environmental impacts, but also to matters of gender, class and global justice. Understanding these dimensions may help us to better understand the nature of the problem, and to develop strategies for reducing emissions while building more equitable and nurturing societies.   Dr. Cuomo is a Professor of Philosophy and Chair of Women's Studies at the University of GA, and an affiliate faculty member of the Environmental Ethics Certificate Program and the Institute for African-American Studies.

Location: 7pm, Parkway Ballroom, 4th floor, Plemmons Student Union.  Reception and Book Signing to follow Dr. Cuomo’s presentation.  Her book, The Philosopher Queen, a reflection on post-9/11 anti-war feminist politics, was nominated for a Lambda Award and an APA book award, and her work in ecofeminist philosophy and creative interdiciplinary practice has been influential among those seeking to bring together social justice and environmental concerns, as well as theory and practice.

The Global Women’s Series addresses contemporary global issues affecting women and girls and is a collaborative effort between a faculty, students, staff and community members.  The program is co-sponsored by the Office of International Education and Development, the Women’s Studies Program, and the Belk Library and Information Commons.
