Event Description
This talk by Julie Livingston, the Julius Silver Professor at New York University, limns the landscape of suicide in Africa, but also here in the U.S., as a means to contemplate the deadly and escalating psychic toll of the current environmental predicament. It asks how climate change — a welter of incremental, corrosive shifts layered with sudden catastrophic events generated and perpetuated through industrial systems of profit — can get under the skin and into the human psyche.
