Redefining our relationship to nature: Alternative environmental metaphors and socio-environmental synthesis (Dr. Brendon Larson- University of Waterloo)

When: Wednesday, February 06, 2013 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Where: SESYNC- 1 Park Place Suite 300, Annapolis, MD 21401
Event Type(s): Seminar

Our approach to conservation-and to nature-is shaped in part by our metaphors. In this presentation, I examine alternative ways of conceptualizing invasive species (e.g., "invasional meltdown" versus "novel ecosystems") and evaluate their implications for socio-environmental synthesis and, more broadly, for our relationship with nature.
