CANCELED: Phi Beta Kappa Lecture
"'On Earth As It Is': On Ethics and the Environment in the Age of the Anthropocene"
Thursday, Sept. 14, at 7:30 p.m., in Coley Rice Lounge, McDaniel Hall
The annual Phi Beta Kappa lecture features Corey D. B. Walker, humanities professor at Wake Forest, where he holds a joint appointment in English and the Interdisciplinary Humanities Program. He is the interim dean of the Wake Forest University School of Divinity and the inaugural director of the Program in African American studies.
His lecture revisits Martin Luther King Jr.’s ideal of “beloved community” and the importance of environmental justice in addressing the threat of climate change. Citing King’s 1967 speech “A Time to Break Silence,” Walker argues that climate change must be approached with the “fierce urgency of now” and observes that in the struggle to create a just and sustainable world, “there is such a thing as being too late.”
