2012 IHR/CLAS Humanities Faculty Authors' Reception
Please join us to recognize and celebrate the substantial body of research reflected in publications by humanities faculty at ASU. We will also be honoring the 2012 IHR Transdisciplinary Book Award winner, Rob Nixon, and his book "Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor," which has three main aims: first, to challenge conventional ways of thinking about violence; second, to dramatize the challenges facing environmental justice movements among the poor, particularly in the global South; and third, to celebrate the creativity and tenacity shown by writer-activists who have testified to the urgency of these environmental struggles.
Nixon, the Rachel Carson Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a frequent contributor to the "New York Times," will open this year’s Reception with a discussion, "Mind the Gap: Slow Violence and the Environmental Humanities.”
