    Sustainable Futures - "Water Sustainability Challenges for the 21st Century: Examples from Asia and Beyond" with Holly Michael
    Mar. 19th, 12:20 PM to 1:10 PM
    204 Gore Hall

    Center for Global & Area Studies spring 2018 lecture series

    The theme Sustainable Futures brings to the forefront a dialogue about how to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability is understood in its broadest sense, and it includes considerations of the distribution of wealth and resources and environmental renewability in our time and in the contexts of nationality and ethnicity, race and social class, and gender and sexuality.

    This series is both a one-credit course (ARSC300) and a free public lecture series. Members of the community are welcome to drop in for one, several, or all of the lectures.

    Mondays from 12:20 – 1:10 PM in 204 Gore Hall

    206 Kirkbride Hall

     CGAS is proud to be a sponsor of the Women & Gender Studies’ 32nd Annual Women’s History Month Film Series.

    March 19: Anita: Speaking Truth to Power

    In 1991, law professor Anita Hill testified before a Senate committee considering Clarence Thomas’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. By recounting the sexual harassment she had endured from Thomas, she highlighted issues of power and sexual misconduct in the workplace that remain relevant in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp. In the years since her testimony, she has become an icon as a woman willing to stand up for racial and gender justice and equality—to “speak truth to power.”
