The Bellarmine Forum presents a panel with nature writer, agrarian activist, and ethnobiologist Gary Nabhan; Associate Professor of English at Loyola Marymount University Stuart Ching; and Professor of English and Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies, journalist, author, and musician Ruben Martinez.
Climate change and migration are intimately connected, more and more often in a causal relationship. Migration predates global warming, and its most common origins – war, political violence, economic crises – form a historical backdrop that haunts “climate refugees.” In other words, the traumas and inequities of the past compound the environmental consequences of global warming. This panel of creative writers-scholars pays special attention to themes such as indigeneity, coloniality and sacred activism in the Pacific Islands, Latin America, and the U.S.-Mexico borderlands.
