Natures, Peoples, and Justice: Collaborative land management and cultural burns in the Australian Capital Territory

Please join the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs, the Program on the Environment, EarthLab, and the Simpson Center for the Humanities on Thursday, February 6 from 4:00-5:30 pm in Communications 120 as we welcome Jessica Weir, PhD from the Institute for Culture and Society, Western Sydney University.

Dr. Weir will be giving a talk titled “Natures, Peoples, and Justice: Collaborative land management and cultural burns in the Australian Capital Territory.”

Dr. Weir is a human geography, environmental humanities and science and technology studies scholar who investigates human-environment relations, justice, societal norms and public sector governance. Her research practice is part of the environmental humanities agenda to resituate humans within their environments, and more-than-humans within cultural and ethical domains. Her book Murray River Country (Aboriginal Studies Press, 2009) is internationally recognized as outstanding scholarship in this field.

We look forward to seeing you there!
