Greening the Academy: Ecopedagogy Through the Liberal Arts
Edited by: Samuel Fassbinder, Anthony J. Nocella II, and Richard Kahn
Sense Publishing (2012)
“Many of the most important forces for social change in human history have taken root in our universities, and today the academy is a crucial site where scholars are working to integrate ecological sustainability and social justice. Greening the Academy is a clarion call for deep green approaches to thinking, teaching, research, and action that can make a dramatic and positive difference for the future of all species.”
- Dr. David Naguib Pellow, Author of Garbage Wars: The Struggle for Environmental Justice in Chicago
CAS will be tabling at the Third Annual Twin Cities Anarchist Book Fair on Sept. 15 and 16, 2012: http://tcanarchist.org/. At the event, ICAS’s Executive Director Anthony J. Nocella will hold a workshop on The Accumulation of Freedom: Writings on Anarchist Economics, an anthology he co-edited and released through AK Press, and present on a panel with members of Save the Kids, a transformative juvenile justice organization that he co-founded. Kim Socha, ICAS’s Director of the CAS Center of Academic Excellence, will facilitate a workshop entitled “Women, Destruction and Animal Liberation,” which pulls from themes of her book Women, Destruction and the Avant-Garde: A Paradigm for Animal Liberation (Rodopi Publishing, 2011).
