In this seminar, the University of Verona’s Anna Paini draws from her fieldwork in Lifou, Loyalty Islands to consider how Lifouan women experience bridewealth, which in this part of the world is more of an understanding between families rather than a formal contract. For most Lifouan people, a customary marriage (faipoipo) is still a key event in becoming a member of the community and to taking their social role in the broader society. Free and open to the public.
In his talk, "Environmental Martyrs and the Fate of the Forests," Princeton's Rob Nixon addresses the current surge in environmental martyrdom against the backdrop of the resource wars across the global South, posing the question 'what is the relationship between the sacrificial figure of the environmental martyr and the proliferation of sacrifice zones under neoliberal globalization?' And, in the battles over the fate of the planet’s forests, what is the relationship between the fallen martyr and the felled tree? Rob Nixon holds the Barron Family Professorship in Humanities and the Environment at Princeton University. He is the author of four books, most recently Dreambirds: the Natural History of a Fantasy and Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor, which won numerous awards, including an American Book Award and the 2012 prize from the International Studies Association for the best book in environmental studies. Nixon writes frequently for the New York Times. His writing has also appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Guardian, The Nation, Chronicle of Higher Education, London Review of Books, the Huffington Post, Critical Inquiry and elsewhere. This annual lecture is presented by the Faculty of Arts and Science and the Department of English.
