Common CAHSS programming begins this week featuring Associate Prof. Alison Staudinger (Democracy and Justice Studies) presenting, “Making Good Choices: Thinking about Ethics beyond Sustainability.” The Free Online Streaming Event is Sept. 24 from 6 to 6:55 p.m.
“I want to convince you, to convince myself, that we have to bother because it’s in ‘staying with the trouble,’ as Donna Haraway calls it, that we have a possibility of acting together, of making mistakes together, of realizing the claim that ‘another world is possible,’ even when crises seem overwhelming. This might take changing our approach to ethical decision-making and how we respond to those who make other choices. Drawing on Haraway, Shotwell, and also Simone De Beauvoir’s classic The Ethics of Ambiguity, I’ll offer in this talk some ideas for thinking about the possibilities for ethics, or perhaps justice, beyond sustainability. Maybe together, sitting at home, we can figure out what to do.
This event will be held on Microsoft teams.
