Join us and five panelists (Bill Gilbert, Erika Osborne, Kaitlin Bryson, David Naranjo and Brionna Garcia) at the University of New Mexico’s Art Museum as we explore ecopedagogy and how it relates to art, teaching, and learning within our community and beyond. Learn about ecopedagogy, the innovative scholarship and practice of these panelists, and critical perspectives engaging art in ecological issues. The panel discussion will include a moderated Q&A and audience conversation.
We will conclude the night with a reception, book sale, and signing of UNM Emeritus Professor Bill Gilbert’s recently published book, Arts Programming for the Anthropocene. This book investigates the origin and evolution of five academic field programs on three continents, (including UNM’s Land Arts of the American West) mapping developments in field pedagogy in the arts over the past twenty years.
This panel discussion is part of Global Futures Initiative – Speaker Series Spring 2019.
Global Futures is an interdisciplinary arts and humanities initiative for critical inquiry, pedagogical innovation, and social justice. The manifold and accelerating crisis of the current historical moment presents unique challenges that require creative new forms of research and collective action. The Global Futures Initiative brings together artists, activists, organizers, and scholars to creatively envision new social possibilities that connect community-based engagement and global movements for social transformation and planetary futurity.
