Barry Presents Paper at Global Workshop

Visiting Assistant Professor of Women’s Studies Joyce M. Barry was invited to participate in a workshop on “Environmental Displacement in a Global Context” on May 4-5 at York University in Toronto. Barry presented a paper titled “Dislocating Appalachia: Gender, Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining, and Climate Change.”

 

Using research on how communities in Appalachia are being displaced by mountaintop removal coal mining and the gendered nature of resistance to mountaintop removal, Barry argued that “environmental justice epistemology emphasizing the local must expand to make vital connections between the local and the global in the face of accelerated climate change.”

 

Barry was one of 19 scholars from around the world invited to present research examining how communities in the North and South are being displaced by environmental problems linked to global climate change. The two-day workshop was co-sponsored by the Centre for International and Security Studies, and the Centre for Refugee Studies at York University.
