2019 Sandra Garrard Memorial Lecture Casey Reas: Earthly Delights

Please join the Murphy Institute for a lecture by award-winning author and Yale professor Hélène Landemore.

Hélène Landemore is Associate Professor of Political Science at Yale University.

Dr. Shelton is a broadly-trained human geographer working at the intersection of digital geographies, critical GIS and urban geography. His research focuses on how urban spaces and social inequalities are represented, reproduced and contested through data. In particular, he is interested in how data can be used to produce alternative understandings of urban socio-spatial inequalities that challenge the stigmatization of certain people and places. 

Life without Lead examines the social, political and environmental dimensions of a devastating lead poisoning epidemic. Drawing from a political ecology of health perspective, Daniel Renfrew situates the Uruguayan lead contamination crisis in relation to neoliberal reform, globalization, and the resurgence of the political Left in Latin America. He traces the rise of an environmental social justice movement and the local and transnational circulation of environmental ideologies and contested science.

The next Tulane-Aspen Institute Values in America Speaker Series event will feature former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, and be moderated by Tulane professor of history, Walter Isaacson. They will discuss nationalism, populism, and Albright’s new book, Fascism: A Warning. A Q&A will follow the discussion, and there will be a post-event book signing.

This event is free and open to the public.
