2021 Environmental Humanities Initiative Distinguished Lecture: Tiffany King
2020 Environmental Humanities Initiative Distinguished Lecture: Elizabeth Hoover
Tiffany King will be the 2021 EHI Distinguished Speaker, scheduled to present her lecture "Losing Faith in Work(s): Black and Indigenous Relations of Doing and Being With” on February 18, 2021.
This event is co-sponsored by the EHI, the Black Ecologies Initiative, the IHR and the Human Sciences Collaboratory of the Global Futures Lab.
Tiffany King is an associate professor of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Georgia State University. Her research is situated at intersections of slavery and indigenous genocide in the Americas. King’s book "The Black Shoals: Offshore Formations of Black and Native Studies" (Duke University Press, 2019) argues that scholarly traditions within Black Studies that examine Indigenous genocide alongside slavery in the Americas have forged ethical and generative engagements with Native Studies — and Native thought — that continue to reinvent the political imaginaries of abolition and decolonization. King is also co-editor of an anthology titled "Otherwise Worlds: Against Settler Colonialism and Anti-Black Racism" (Duke University Press, 2020).
Planetary Management Symposium Series: Agents of Change: Futures of Hope, Futures of Concern
