Join us for a lecture by Juno S. Perreñas (Ohio State University) titled: “Properties of Multispecies Injustice: Indigenous Wildlife, Ownership, and Arrested Decolonization in Southeast Asia and South Africa.”  

The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with Juanita Sundberg (UBC), Michelle Daigle (UBC), Rosemary Collard (SFU), and Juno S. Perreñas (OSU).

This event will conclude with a reception with food and drinks in the Geographic Information Centre (GIC).

Juno S, Parreñas is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Ohio State University. Her ethnographic research speaks to feminist science studies, environmental humanities, critical development studies, and global political economy. Her book, Decolonizing Extinction: The Work of Care in Orangutan Rehabilitation, will be published by Duke University Press in late summer 2018 and examines the question of how are we to live and die in this current age of extinction when colonial legacies help determine who and what are in better positions to survive. 

This event is organized by current Wall Scholars Jessica Dempsey (Geography) and Leila Harris (IRES) in collaboration with Juanita Sundberg, Rosemary Collard and other colleagues.

No registration is required.
