Join us for a discussion about how accelerating climate change is shaping and being shaped by politics and culture, this Wednesday January 30th at 7pm at the Black Box Theatre in L.R. Wilson Hall.
Robert O’Brien is Professor of Political Science and former director of McMaster’s Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition. He is the author of six books and over twenty journal articles and book chapters in the fields of international relations and global political economy.
Susie O’Brien is an Associate Professor in the Department of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster where her research and teaching focus on postcolonial and environmental literary and cultural studies. Her publications include Time, Globalization and the Human Experience and Popular Culture: A User’s Guide.
Hosted in partnership by English and Cultural Studies and the Department of Political Science, this talk is a part of the Living Democracy series of the The Socrates Project – McMaster University. Democracy can be strengthened or weakened, made anemic or vital. This series assumes that democracy must be tended, and offers differing, sometimes competing, ways of doing so.
Please join us for this free event, which is open to McMaster staff, students and faculty, as well as community members!
