      CANCELLED- Gymnasium: Telling Our Climate Stories

      *****************THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED******************

      Nearly two years have passed since Hurricane María made landfall in Puerto Rico, yet its effects are still reeling through the islands. Rather than assisting with recovery, government agencies are engaging in what Assistant Professor Christina Boyles terms climatizing surveillance—mechanisms developed to both disempower Puerto Ricans and to ensure valuable resources remain in the hands of the wealthy elite. In this gymnasium session, Professor Boyles traces how these processes operate in Puerto Rico, and highlights their broader implications for a climate-stricken world. In conversation with Never Spoken Again: Rogue Stories of Science and Collections and John Lucas and Claudia Rankine: Situations, participants will practice story-telling—in image and word—as a strategy of ecological and political resistance.

      Cost: Free - Free and open to the public.
