2017 Spring Symposium:


Friday, April 28, 2017

The Seminar’s major spring event will take place Friday, April 28th, from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm, in New North Building of Georgetown’s campus, with breakfast and lunch served, and a reception to follow.


The symposium theme is designed to vault us from our work during this one-day Friday seminar into the People’s Climate March on the following day.

We are delighted to announce that our speakers will include: Paul Wapner (American University, School of International Service), Elisabeth Anker (George Washington, American Studies), Tita Chico (U Maryland, English), Jennifer James (George Washington, English and Africana Studies), Michael Degani (Johns Hopkins U, Anthropology), and Jennifer Wenzel (Columbia U, English and Comparative Literature). The keynote speaker will be Eduardo Kohn (McGill U, Anthropology), author of How Forests Think. Chase Iron Eyes, #NoDAPL activist and member of the Standing Rock Sioux, will give closing remarks.
