Craig Santos Perez
Environmental justice and the power of the Pacific word
Join award-winning poet and scholar Craig Santos Perez from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, as he reflects on the vital role of Pacific literature for the environments of Oceania.
Environmental change is happening all around us, and yet voices differ over its causes and consequences. At the same time, our human activity is playing an increasingly significant role in shaping the earth and its future possibilities.
This landmark lecture series offers a range of talks by leading international and Australian scholars in the Environmental Humanities. It will draw on insights from history, literature, philosophy, anthropology and related disciplines and explore the important role humanities can play in addressing some of the most pressing environmental challenges of our day.
Monthly | 6pm for a welcome drink. Talks start at 6:30pm.
