NIU Virtual Presentation: NNGO Speaker Series, Humanity’s Last Stand
Tuesday February 9 @ 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Dr. Mark Schuller will discuss his latest book Humanity’s Last Stand: Confronting Global Catastrophe to be published January 2021 by Rutgers University Press.
Surveying the struggles of disenfranchised peoples around the globe from frontline communities affected by climate change, to #BlackLivesMatter activists, to Indigenous water protectors, to migrant communities facing increasing hostility, anthropologist Mark Schuller argues that we must develop radical empathy in order to move beyond simply identifying as “allies” and start acting as “accomplices.” The book explores how to cultivate an anthropological imagination, a mindset that remains attentive to local differences even as it identifies global patterns of inequality and racism.
Cosponsored by the Department of Anthropology.
