Event is on Zoom. Register in advance:

Contesting Extinctions: Decolonial and Regenerative Futures (Lexington, 2021) critically interrogates the discursive framing of extinctions and how they relate to the systems that bring about biocultural loss. The chapters in this multidisciplinary volume examine approaches to ecological and social extinction and resurgence from a variety of fields, including environmental studies, literary studies, political science, and philosophy. Grounding their scholarship in decolonial, Indigenous, and counter-hegemonic frameworks, the contributors advocate for shifting the discursive focus from ruin to regeneration.

Co-sponsored by the Humanities Center, Miami University Spanish & Portuguese Department, and Athabasca University
