Postponed: Department of History and Sociology Speaker Series

March 28 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

**This event has been postponed.**

The Department of History and Sociology presents the fourth installment of its speaker series featuring Cristina Mejia Visperas, Assistant Professor of Communication at the University of Southern California.

In her presentation, Professor Visperas will discuss how the emergence of psychological constructs such as climate anxiety and eco-grief reflect a growing interest in managing mental health in a global context, where data about climate change has not led to the substantive societal transformations called for with increasing urgency by experts, activists, and advocates alike.

This failure to produce societal change has led to a renewed interest in the power of emotions for developing coping mechanisms against an uncertain future, for resilience-building in the aftermath of disasters, and for empowering individuals through consciousness-raising and collective action.

Everyone is welcome and registration is not required.
