Claiming Kinship: Indiana’s Social & Environmental History (Hanover)
Event Details

What will Indiana’s future environments look like in 50 years? 100 years? 200 years? What must we accomplish in the immediate future to become more resilient, and how can history help inform this process? Can Hoosiers unite across boundaries to meet the challenge of environmental change? In this talk, Dr. Browning first investigates strands of environmental thought throughout Indiana’s history, and then ties this history to the IU Environmental Resilience Institute’s ongoing Hoosier Life Survey on Hoosiers’ attitudes toward the environment. She then concludes with a discussion of what a “livable future” might look like, and how identifying shared histories of Hoosier environmental ethics might catalyze connections across social, political, and cultural divides.
