In recognition of the scholarship by NeMLA’s 2018 keynote speaker, Rob Nixon, this session seeks to apply his works and other ecological scholars for considerations about the place of environmentalism in development and city planning--and especially the contributions cities have made in damaging global ecological systems. Approaches that consider environmentalism in Pittsburgh, postcolonial studies, transcultural studies, and social movements are encouraged.
