Southern Spaces, Southern Changes: Educating for Environmental Justice Nothing Never Happens

How can we ground our classrooms in praxes of environmental justice? How can teachers and learners build ethical connections to local communities mobilizing against climate emergency and structural abandonment? Scholar-activist https://ams.ua.edu/people/ellen-spears/ (Ellen Spears) joins us to discuss these questions and more. Prof. Spears is a Professor of American Studies at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa. She is a prolific author, whose most recent books include the award-winning https://uncpress.org/book/9781469627298/baptized-in-pcbs/ (Baptized in PCBs: Race, Religion, Pollution, and Justice in an All-American Town) (2014) and https://www.routledge.com/Rethinking-the-American-Environmental-Movement-post-1945/Spears/p/book/9780415529587 (Rethinking the American Environmental Movement Post-1945) (2019). She was part of the Task Force on History, Slavery, and Civil Rights at the UA-Tuscaloosa. Her courses range from comparative ecologies, to environmental ethics and policy, to environment and film.
