Lecture/Speaker

Green Up and the Environmental Studies Program are sponsoring a talk by Terry Tempest Williams, an award-winning and internationally celebrated environmental author and activist and one of the most influential defenders of America's wild places. Says Nat Lewis of the English and Environmental Studies faculty, “She is a great fit for St. Mike's because of her long-standing commitment not only to the natural environment but to spiritual practices and ethical reflection.” Terry Tempest Williams has been called 'a citizen writer,' a writer who speaks and speaks out eloquently on behalf of an ethical stance toward life. A naturalist and fierce advocate for freedom of speech, she has consistently shown us how environmental issues are social issues that ultimately become matters of justice. 'So here is my question,' she asks, 'what might a different kind of power look like, feel like, and can power be redistributed equitably even beyond our own species?' She is currently the Provostial Scholar at Dartmouth College. Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Orion Magazine, and numerous anthologies worldwide as a crucial voice for ecological consciousness and social change.
