Bridging Indigenous and Scientific Knowledges: Multicultural Solutions for Climate Change Research

Filed under Academic, Events on January 27, 2014.

Philosopher Kyle Whyte (Michigan State University) is giving a free lecture on January 29 at the University of Florida entitled, “Bridging Indigenous and Scientific Knowledges: Multicultural Solutions for Climate Change Research” in Smathers Library Room 1A at 5:30 p.m.

Whyte is a premier scholar of environmental change, relating to the ethics of how such changes affect Indigenous and Native American communities. Indigenous peoples living in North America have long been affected by climate change, but these communities face obstacles in discussing solutions with scientists. His research investigates how individuals from different backgrounds can come together and share knowledge from elders of Indigenous communities and climate scientists.
