Part I of Cara Judea Alhadeff’s book launch for Zazu Dreams: Between the Scarab and the Dung Beetle, A Cautionary Fable for the Anthropocene Era
Environmental justice activists, farmers, scientists, and fellows from Cornell’s Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future will be in conversation. Bridging the humanities and the sciences through the lens of storytelling, these scholars will unravel “what we think we know” about climate justice, eco-literacy, indigenous environmental philosophies, agribusiness, and petropharmaculture.
Panelists — Scott Peters: Cornell Professor of Sociology and Co-Director of Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life; Eric Cheyfitz: Cornell Professor of English and the American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program; Kathryn March: Cultural Anthropologist, Christopher Clark: Cornell Lab’s Senior Scientist on Animal Communication; Robert Schooler: anti-GMO educator activist; and MIT’s Stephanie Seneff: Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (co-author of Cara’s upcoming book on agribusiness, “petroleum-parenting,” and gender justice).
