Teaching Fellowship Winter 2016

I am pleased to announce that I will be co-teaching ENSC 321: Environmental Justice in a Global Context in Winter 2016 at Queen’s University. The course will examine the differential and unequal environmental effects across race, class, gender and nation. Topics include: northern indigeneity and climate change; globalization and waste management; resource extraction; human and non-human disasters; environmental degradation; and, degrowth.

My co-teacher Scott Lougheed and I are very much looking forward to the teaching opportunity.

Visual Bites in Context at Union Gallery

The UnioScreen Shot 2015-01-15 at 10.16.45 PMn Gallery presents Visual Bites in Context, a cross disciplinary informal speaker series in which members of the Queen’s community join the artists in the current exhibitions to share their research and creative processes.

On January 22nd, 2015 from 3:00pm-4:30pm, I will be presenting alongside artist Brian Hoad. Hoad’s woodcuts capture poignant moments of human interaction with nature. These images evoke a sense of nostalgia and invite the viewer to reflect upon their own connection with the environment. I will be unpacking Canada’s waste management practices, with an emphasis on the potential for new, sustainable alternatives.
