The Faculty Works-in-Progress Series is sponsored by the Dean of the College of Social Sciences and Humanities and the Northeastern Humanities Center. Faculty members from all colleges have the opportunity to share their current research with colleagues and benefit from questions and discussions. This event will include some of the the 2020-21 “Disruption and Displacement” Fellows, including GRI Faculty Affiliates Shalanda Baker and Laura Kuhl. Professor Baker will give her presentation, “Energy Justice in a World on Fire,” followed by Professor Kuhl’s discussion, “Narratives of Displacement in Adaptation Funding: Analysis of UN Climate Funds.”

Mindful of the current refugee crises, displacements caused by climate change, cultural appropriations and re-appropriations as forms of displacement, and translation as one example of a strategy that might ease the effects of displacement, the goal of this series is to encourage cross-disciplinary conversations that deepen our understanding of disruption and displacement.


The event will take place, Monday, March 22, 2021 at 12:00 PM EST. To register, click here.
