Africa Matters: Envisioning an Equitable and Sustainable Africa

Africa Matters: Envisioning an Equitable and Sustainable Africa

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Fowler - Lecture/Classroom - A103B

Lenart Auditorium

The dazzling array of artworks in Earth Matters serve as inspiration for posing new, cross-disciplinary questions about the politics of conservation in Africa.

Bridging the sciences and the humanities in a provocative and fruitful encounter between the fields of law, literature, conservation biology, art history, and the geographies of food production, UCLA scholars consider how we might counteract “business as usual” and imagine new possibilities for a more equitable and sustainable future.

Participants are E. Tendayi Achiume, Binder Clinical Teaching Fellow, School of Law; Judith Carney, Professor, Geography; Yogita Goyal, Associate Professor, English; Kevin Njabo, Africa Director, Center for Tropical Research, Institute of the Environment and Sustainability; and moderator Gemma Rodrigues, Curator of African Arts, Fowler Museum.

Come early for open galleries and a light reception from 5-6PM. RSVP: fowlerprograms@arts.ucla.edu
