NNGO Speaker Series: Humanity's Last Stand
Dr. Mark Schuller will discuss his latest book “Humanity’s Last Stand: Confronting Global Catastrophe” to be published January 2021 by Rutgers University Press. Surveying the struggles of disenfranchised peoples around the globe from frontline communities affected by climate change, to #BlackLivesMatter activists, to Indigenous water protectors, to migrant communities facing increasing hostility, anthropologist Mark Schuller argues that we must develop radical empathy in order to move beyond simply identifying as “allies” and start acting as “accomplices.” The book explores how to cultivate an anthropological imagination, a mindset that remains attentive to local differences even as it identifies global patterns of inequality and racism. Cosponsor: Department of Anthropology

Feb 9, 2021 11:00 AM in Central Time (US and Canada)
