Introducing Environmental Humanities at the University of Kentucky and the Wider Community

The “Introducing Environmental Humanities at the University of Kentucky and the Wider Community” workshop seeks to support the University of Kentucky’s newly established Environmental Humanities Initiative. This workshop is in the form of a Zoom meeting (rather than a Zoom webinar) which will provide a platform for everyone’s input. We have invited speakers from two different environmental humanities programs to speak about their own EH initiative’s origins, challenges, and structures. Dr. Walker, from Colby College’s Environmental Humanities Initiative, as well as Dr. Engelhardt and Anna Hamilton, from the Mellon-funded Coasts, Climates, the Humanities, and the Environment Consortium, will relay their own experiences whilst allowing for discussion across our group. We invite you to come along and share in this exciting and informative project.

The State of Education: A Conversation about Public Schooling, Critical Race Theory, and Political Polarization

 

Over the past year, the teaching of “critical race theory” in public schools has become a hot-button political issue, dividing parents, teachers, and school board officials alike, sparking a national conversation about who should determine the content of public-school curriculum, and leading to the introduction of legislation that would limit what could be taught in Kentucky classrooms. The Cooperative for the Humanities and Social Sciences is bringing together scholars and community members to discuss critical social problems, in this case the influence of political polarization on public school curriculum. We will discuss what exactly critical race theory is, seek to understand why legislation affecting school curriculum is being introduced in Kentucky, and explore what its impact might be. Our panelists include: Nikki Brown, UK Professor of History and African American and Africana Studies; Arnold Farr, UK Professor of Philosophy and Fayette-Urban County Council-at-Large Candidate; Tyler Murphy, Chair of the Fayette County Board of Education and a National Board-Certified Social Studies Teacher at Boyle County High School; Pragya Upreti, a Senior at Lafayette High School and the research lead for the Kentucky Student Voice Team, an independent youth-led organization focusing on education research, policy, and advocacy; Steve Voss, UK Professor of Political Science; and Lucy Waterbury, a Fayette County Public School Parent, School Based Decision Making Council Parent Representative, PTSA Leader, and co-founder of Save Our Schools Kentucky.

A Cooperative for the Humanities and Social Sciences Workshop Series Event

 

Mutual aid is the radical act of caring for each other while working to change the world, especially

as people around the world are faced with crises such as climate change-induced fires, floods, and storms,

mass incarceration, racist policing, environmental degradation caused by capitalism and severe wealth inequality.

 

This workshop is to give University of Kentucky’s faculty, staff, students, and Fayette County’s

community members tools for understanding what mutual aid is and why it is important.

 

This event is sponsored by the Cooperative for the Humanities and Social Sciences and Department of Gender & Women’s Studies
