Ecologies of Injustice: Panel Discussion April 10th
March 17, 2017
Please join us on Monday, April 10th for “Ecologies of Injustice” — a panel discussion hosted by The Global Forum on Urban and Regional Resilience.
This panel discussion brings together scholars at Virginia Tech whose work intersects the concerns of environmental justice, with community members, and interested individuals to increase our understanding of the diffuse ways that environmental injustice is experienced in our contemporary world. The conversation encompasses political, economic, social, and environmental factors that precipitate disproportionate exposure to environmental risk or access to resources and is designed to build bridges across the Virginia Tech campus and greater-Blacksburg community.
Topics addressed include:
* food justice and labor;
* technological domination;
* regulatory and legal frameworks;
* artistic spaces for environmental resistance;
* and . . . many others.
Date: Monday, April 10th
Time: 5:30 PM
Location: Solitude Room
