Spotlight on Care: Climate Change / Climate Anxiety / Climate Coping

11:00am-12:00pm CT Thursday, March 25, 2021 Online
Hosted by The Commons, the IPSR Center for Compassionate and Sustainable Communities, and the Spencer Museum of Art; with support from the Environmental Studies Program, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and the Center for Faculty Development and Mentoring

Ali Brox, Assistant Teaching Professor in the Environmental Studies Program, teaches classes on “Cli-Fi” (Climate Fiction) and engages students in how to talk about climate change. She also experiences these conversations as a mother, and has been inspired by writers like Amy Westervelt, who feature this difficult conversation in their work. This session addresses the ways in which we respond to what we know about climate change and how we build community along the way.
