Teaching and Knowing an Anti-Racist Nature, with Dr. Kim Ruffin

In this interactive, research and experience-based presentation presented by the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities, Prof. Kim Ruffin will explore the ways in which she teaches and invites students and the general public to know what she describes as an "anti-racist nature." She'll engage Environmental Humanities and experiential learning scholarship through examples from her teaching and guiding work. Participants will be invited to design their own experiential learning activity and contribute to a discussion about how nature education can be made more inclusive, historically accurate, and meaningful for individuals. This lecture is second in a four-part Oxford-Penn-Toronto International Doctoral Cluster speaker series.
