The Institute for Policy, Ethics, and Culture, in partnership with the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts, is presenting "Justice in Transition," a virtual speaker series in March and April. Robin Wall Kimmerer will speak on Tuesday, March 30, at 7:00 pm via Zoom Webinar.
"Justice for the Land" is a keynote addressing how we understand the meaning of land colors our relationship to the natural world in ecology, economics, and ethics. Indigenous knowledge frameworks dramatically expand the conventional understanding of lands—from natural resources to relatives, from land rights to land responsibilities. We will consider what enacting justice for the land might look like, through restoration, reparations, and Rights of Nature.
Valoree Gagnon, Director of University-Indiginous Community Partnerships at the Great Lakes Research Center will host a discussion and Q&A with Robin Wall Kimmerer after her presentation.
