A lecture by Dina Gilio-Whitaker. This event is free and open to the public. No pre-registration is required. Professor Gilio-Whitaker will discuss her work on environmental justice in Indian country, which is the topic of her forthcoming new book, As Long As Grass Grows: The Indigenous Fight for Environmental Justice from Colonization to Standing Rock. Taking Standing Rock as the most immediate example of what environmental injustice is for American Indians, the book examines what it means to "indigenize" environmental justice discourse, activism, and legal frameworks. Much of her research and teaching also focuses on examples specific to Southern California beach spaces, which interacts particularly with development and surf culture, and will be the highlight of her talk.
