Environmental Justice Storytelling in the Outdoor Diversity Movement

9. October 2023, 17:30–19:30

Talk by Dr. Sarah Wald from University of Oregon

This talk examines the outdoor diversity movement through the lenses of environmental justice and cultural studies. The outdoor diversity movement emerged in response to the discrimination, alienation, and exclusion that many Black, Indigenous, Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Latinx people, among other “unlikely hikers,” experience on public lands and in other outdoor recreation spaces. The author is interested in the ways that outdoor diversity movement narratives by Asian American and Latinx writers, artists, and other movement participants challenge conventional understandings of race, nature, and nation to help us imagine intersectional and justice-oriented environmentalisms for the twenty-first century.
