Faculty at Home: Kemi Fuentes-George

Tuesday, September 27, 2022 4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

Please join Kemi Fuentes-George, associate professor of political science, for a talk entitled "The Art of Storytelling: Narratives, Culture, and Environmental Governance." Environmental management is shaped by the stories people tell about nature. Imagine a hypothetical grove of trees. Is it a carbon sink, generating credits sold on the international market? Is it a habitat for endangered species? Or is it a sacred site for local communities? In global governance, the answers to these questions lead to different, sometimes incompatible approaches. Consequently, environmental governance stakeholders have always contested what stories should be told about nature and the environment. In the past three decades, indigenous, tribal, and local communities have gained growing, but still small scale influence over environmental narratives, and thus policy.
