Environmental Affairs Symposium

A dialog with Christopher Foreman and David Pellow

This keynote event explored how intersections between environmental and social justice issues have come to be represented in today’s intellectual landscape, and what imaginative solutions might be available or precluded as a result. Each speaker gave a 20 minute individual talk, followed by a dialog between speakers and a question and answer period with the audience.
