The Forgetting of Race in the Anthropocene

Benjamin Rabinowitz Lecture in Environmental Ethics

“Eye of the Storm: Climate Ethics in an Age of Inaction”

Keynote Speaker: Nancy Tuana


Department of Philosophy

Penn State University

While recent work on gender and climate change has brought to light the differential impacts of climate change on women and men, far less attention has been directed to race. Applying an intersectional perspective reveals the forgetting of race in the discourses and practices of the Anthropocene. These dimensions can be revealed through, for example, attunement to the impact of institutions, examination of the discourses and strategies for mitigation and adaptation, and attentiveness to the framing of climate impacts.
