Nancy Rich will speak on “2-Eyed Seeing: Indigenous Knowledge Meets Environmental Studies” Friday, April 29, as part of the Environmental Studies Colloquium speaker series. The talk will take place from 11:30 a.m. to noon in the Community Room at AUNE. It is free and open to the public.
The lecture by Tyrone Hayes, originally scheduled to speak, has been canceled.
Rich will explore how Native American perspectives, myths about those perspectives. and how the notions of Western science and environmentalism relate in academia. Based on interviews with faculty, the talk suggests how conversations between indigenous and Western perspectives could take place in environmental studies programs.
Rich is a doctoral candidate in environmental studies at AUNE and a lifelong hiker and backpacker.
