Symposium to Examine Feminist Approaches to the Climate Crisis
On October 7–9, the UMass Boston Consortium on Gender, Security & Human Rights will host an online symposium: Confronting the Climate Crisis: Feminist Pathways to Just and Sustainable Futures.
This symposium will examine the ways proposed responses to climate change may themselves pose environmental risks, as well as deepening existing gender, racial, and global inequalities. The event will highlight the work being done by diverse feminist thinkers to create the radical solutions that the crisis demands, proposing fundamental shifts in the dominant global economic model.
The focus will be on intersectional feminist analysis, with an emphasis on global justice and sustainability.
The symposium is free and open to all. Register here!
