FAU Research in Action: "The Stories We Tell About Climate Change and Energy," with Stacey Balkan, PhD

Thursday, April 18, 2019

Imagine a world powered by solar or wind! Asking questions about energy use and exploring potential alternatives to fossil fuels brings us one step closer to that possibility. In “The Stories We Tell About Climate Change and Energy,” Stacey Balkan, PhD, discusses alternatives to petroleum, survival in the face of extreme global climate changes, fossil fuel use history, Anthropocene origins and making a difference.

Dr. Balkan is assistant professor of Environmental Literature and Humanities and an affiliate faculty member of FAU’s Peace, Justice, and Human Rights Initiative. Her teaching and research focus on postcolonial ecologies, landscape aesthetics and counter-pastoralism, and environmental justice.
