Ecological Grief is not new, but on the Rise

Nov 22 2018

Grieving the loss or change of a cherished natural space has not always been recognized as a true form of grieving. For example, the grief First Nations Peoples in USA and Canada experienced after losing their way of life in the wake of colonization, was generally not recognized as ecological grief.

Ecological Grief

Nov 22 2018

Grieving the loss or change of a cherished natural space has not always been recognized as a true form of grieving. With wildfires and summers filled with smoke, devastating flooding, subtle changes in the seasons, and the recent IPCC report, ecological grief is now starting to become recognized as a legitimate form of mourning and anxiety. But like all forms of grief, ecological grief is personal, unique, and doesn't often follow a logical pattern. Join us for a discussion around the ways we may grieve a landscape similarly (and differently) to other forms of loss. Read more about Ecological Grief

Igniting the Sparkle: Sharing knowledge between Western and Indigenous sciences

Mar 9 2016

The Faculties of Science and Native Studies are pleased to announce a two-day event to showcase, explore, reinforce and expand intersections between western and Indigenous knowledge and science. Inspired by the Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report, this conversation will build and enhance these connections through a public talk and symposium, to explore how we can contribute to finding ways to share and respect science knowledge within and between these two cultures and worldviews.

Kicking off this event is a special keynote lecture from Gregory Cajete—Author, Educator, and Director of Native American Studies at the University of New Mexico. Read more about Igniting the Sparkle: Sharing knowledge between Western and Indigenous sciences

Change is in the Air: from Climate Chaos to Climate Justice

Jan 20 2016 to Jan 21 2016

Change is in the Air Poster

The King’s University invites you to its Winter 2016 Interdisciplinary Studies Conference

CHANGE IS IN THE AIR – in more ways than one. On one hand, the climate is changing. Overwhelming scientific consensus confirms the reality of climate change and warns of the threat it poses to the planet and its human and non-human inhabitants. These warnings have prompted urgent appeals, not simply for changes in action and policy, but also deeper changes in how we think about and imagine our relationship to the creation itself. But change is in the air in other ways too – as vulnerable communities respond to the challenge of global warming, as our reliance on the carbon economy is being questioned, and as political leaders try to hammer out a global climate agreement, change is inevitable.
