“Water is Life”: Fresh waters, ethics, and decolonial values in a pluralistic world

Christiana Zenner, PhD, associate professor of theology, science, and ethics at Fordham University

What kind of thing is water? Join us for an exploration of how the values of fresh waters are parsed, contested, and defended in the present day.

From global markets to Laudato Si’ to Standing Rock and Flint, this Myser Lecture will explore who defines what kind of thing water is, how it flows, and why decolonial approaches are crucial to fresh water ethics.




WHEN: Thursday, April 22, 7:00  – 9:00 pm CT. This is a virtual event through Saint Catherine University.
