Storrs Campus
Konover Auditorium, Dodd Research Center

Dr. Robert Nixon from Princeton University will give a talk entitled “Slow Violence, Environmental Activism, and the Arts” for the University of Connecticut’s Edwin Way Teale Lecture Series on Nature and the Environment. The talk will take place on November 19, 4 pm at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, Konover Auditorium, at UConn. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Dr. Robert Nixon will explore the imaginative and political challenges posed by slow violence, by the incremental casualties that shadow our most pressing environmental crises. His talk will focus on activists and artists who are responding with an urgent creativity to the challenge of representing unspectacular environmental violence in a spectacle-obsessed age. Dr. Nixon is the Thomas A. and Currie C. Barron Family Professor in Humanities and the Environment at Princeton University.

The Edwin Way Teale Lecture Series brings leading scholars and scientists to the University of Connecticut to present public lectures on nature and the environment. The lectures are open to the public and do not require registration.
