When: Thu., Sept. 7, 5:30-7 p.m. 2017
As part of the Sustainable Futures Speaker Series, Dr. Ken Liberman will present "Can ‘Nature’ Teach Anything?” Liberman argues that environmental studies has been burdened with perspectives that have failed to afford access to the actual experience of living in a landscape, and that dualist and nondualist inquiries alike are plagued by anthropocentrisms. This lecture explores how we can investigate the relation of humans and landscapes in ways that preserve what really occurs there, and begin to open those lived phenomena to rigorous scrutiny. Liberman is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of Oregon. Location: Founders Hall 118, HSU.
