Call for Applications: Masterclass in Indigenous Environmental Justice, Columbia University

January 18, 2022


Open to Columbia University and Barnard College advanced undergraduate and graduate students. 


The Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life is hosting a masterclass over four Zoom sessions exploring Indigenous environmental justice. Using critical Indigenous methods, the master class seeks trace diverse Indigenous roots for imagining and practicing sustainability and climate change mitigation through an environmental justice lens. The master class will engage traditional and recent materials for investigating environmental justice through memory, kinship, non-linear time, epistemology, and constructive criticism of core concepts of crisis and hope. Participants in the master class will discuss together how sustainability and climate change mitigation would be understood and practiced differently in a world where Indigenous knowledge systems and experiences were more prominently engaged.
