Christina Gerhardt speaks on her book Sea Change. The title includes essays, maps, art, and poetry showing island nations in a warming world. Low-lying islands are least responsible for climate change, but are suffering the brunt of it. This atlas reorients your vantage point to center these islands, highlighting Indigenous and Black voices and the work of communities taking action for local and global climate justice

Gerhardt is Associate Professor at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, Senior Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, and former Barron Professor of Environment and the Humanities at Princeton University. Her environmental journalism has been published by Grist.orgThe NationThe Progressive, and the Washington Monthly.

A limited number of copies of Sea Change will be given to attendees.
