Ecological Grief

Recorded: March 28 2019 We are living in a time of increasing ecological loss – with some being forced to feel it more acutely than others. For instance, temperatures are warming much faster in the north of Newfoundland and Labrador than in the rest of the world. And with the loss of sea ice, people’s home places have been changing rapidly. ’Ecological grief’ has emerged as a necessarily interdisciplinary concept, open to a range of methodological and epistemological interpretations. Helping us to begin a conversation about this important topic at Queen’s, we have with us playwright and scholar, Dr. Julie Salverson, and a geographer specializing in northern environments, Dr. Robert Way. Together they share stories and engage with the audience about how to grapple with ecological loss and grief in today’s world. Speaker Details: Julie Salverson, Associate Professor As an author, playwright and scholar, Julie Salverson explores what it means to witness a terribly beautiful world and the role stories, the imagination and the absurd play in how we live. Julie is affiliated with Queen’s University’s Dan School of Drama & Music and the Department of Cultural Studies, Royal Military College of Canada, Playwrights Guild of Canada, Writers Union of Canada.

Kindness and Interconnectivity

Kindness and Interconnectivity

Recorded: February 14 2019 Set around a fireplace in Queen’s University’s Stauffer Library, this conversation addresses the relations between kindness and interconnectivity. Queen’s Jacqueline M. Davies (Professor in Philosophy) and Paul Grogan (Professor in Terrestrial Ecosystem Ecology) consider, from different disciplinary perspectives, questions like: what does kindness and awareness of interconnection mean in the classroom?  The conversation begins and ends with a guided meditation before the audience is invited to join in to further the discussion.  Speakers:  Paul Grogan is interested in how the plants, animals and soil organisms of terrestrial ecosystems interact with each other and with their physical environment. Understanding these inter-relationships between biology and the flows of energy and nutrients is the basis for predicting how terrestrial ecosystems will respond to changes in climate, land-use, and other perturbations. Jackie Davies is a mother, teacher, immigrant and settler who has spent most of her life in Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe territory, much of it at Queen’s. From her undergraduate studies in Life Sciences, Psychology, and Philosophy to her current affiliations with Philosophy, Gender Studies, Jewish Studies, and Cultural Studies, Jackie is convinced of the epistemic necessity of interdisciplinarity.
