Some of you in the Pacific Northwest may have seen this story about the Evergreen State College this week. It came as some overdue recognition and publicity for an incredible institution of learning, one many Washingtonians don't even know about. Tucked away in the woods outside of Olympia, TESC turns 44 this year, and its been doing incredible work for the duration. I'm a Greener from way back (class of 2001) and this week I am honored to return to my roots to speak about my book. Downwind is uniquely a product of the education I received at Evergreen. Social and environmental justice were cornerstones of my learning as an undergraduate, and the thoroughly interdisciplinary training I received at TESC launched me into graduate school (and my research into nuclear history) with an ample toolkit for research and analysis.
I will be speaking at Evergreen this Thursday, May 14 in the COM Building Recital Hall from 12:00pm to 1:00 pm.
