Climate Crisis and Comedy Crisis with Nicole Seymour

Thursday, April 20 (5-7 p.m.) | Lindsay Auditorium, Sturm Hall 281

Environmental art and activism in the Global North have long been known for employing modes such as “doom and gloom,” sanctimony, and sentimentality—modes which can overwhelm and alienate audiences. Nicole Seymour tells us a different story. Her lecture will begin by drawing on her book Bad Environmentalism to outline a neglected tradition of alternative art and activism: one that employs comedic modes such as irony, irreverence, and campiness to reflect critically on both our current moment of crisis and on mainstream environmentalism itself—including its whiteness and straightness. However, as she will describe in the second part of her talk, some cultural critics have since declared that comedic modes are in crisis. Seymour will conclude her lecture with a few predictions and possibilities.

DU Students at CO State Senate

DU At The Colorado Senate

Stories that Speak to Us: What the CAHSS Community is Reading, Listening to, Watching for Earth Month

This is a news article published in the CAHSS newsroom asking faculty, students and staff about their favorite environmental books, movies, tv shows, podcasts, etc. ahead of Earth Day later this month.


Calling all DU undergrads, professional/graduate students, and other trainees!

  • Are you interested in converting your work at DU into real economic, commercial, public, and/or social impact?
  • Would you like to learn how to shepherd high-impact research results into real-world use and applications?
  • Do you want to learn the knowledge and gain applied skills and experience that will make you a superior candidate for the job opportunities of tomorrow?
  • Do you want to develop the skills, knowledge, and connections to move fluidly across the academic-industry divide?
  • Would you like to help DU change the higher education paradigm? DU will be submitting an institution-wide grant proposal at the beginning of May, and we’re looking for students and trainees—at all levels—to participate!
ÔÇïÔÇïÔÇïÔÇïÔÇïÔÇïStudents will be invited to join new courses, programs, and applied experiences that will be developed as part of the grant, and their feedback will shape these offerings for future generations.

Students/trainees with deep passion for goals of this project may also be among the select few to serve as ambassadors! These select individuals will have the opportunity to champion the program while learning from a nationwide network of ambassadors (including representatives from universities, government/community bodies, and industry, to world-class researchers and fellow students)!

This opportunity is brought to you by DU RITE—the team spearheading DU’s information gathering, visioning, and proposal drafting for this grant proposal. If you’d like to help DU to “DU RITE,” check out the DU RITE Digication page
