25th Annual Environment Across Boundaries (ENVX) Symposium: Deconstructing the Apocalypse

October 16–20

Recent forest fires, hurricanes, floods, droughts, and heatwaves can be understood as a coherent story of increasing climate change impacts. Eye-catching media narratives and urgent appeals from climate activists have led to climate anxiety among many people of the world, perhaps especially so for young people. How does psychology, science, and narrative contribute to our construction of future climate scenarios? How can you, as a media consumer, parse the future scenarios that you encounter and distill the actions that you may choose to take?

19th Annual Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies: The Art of Storytelling

November 9–11

The 19th Annual Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies examines the practices, purposes, and impacts of storytelling for BIPOC individuals and communities. Art of Storytelling asks us to consider which stories are told and by whom. What is the relationship between telling stories and telling the truth? When might storytelling be dangerous, and for whom? How might storytelling create joy, grief, anger, or wonder? What role does storytelling play in fostering connections and forging identities? As a spoken, written, visual, and embodied art, how has storytelling been a space where BIPOC communities envision and produce a more just future?
