November's lecture is Superfunded: Recreating Nature in a Postindustrial West
The EPA Superfund program was established in 1980 and over 1,700 locations have been placed on the National Priorities List (NPL). Superfund sites cover a vast array of environmental damages that contaminate the land and impact the health of citizens across the nation. Superfund's goal is to clean up some of the nation's most contaminated waste sites.
Former mining communities in the Intermountain West were built on a premise of wealth and power fortified by resource extraction. Mining and smelting generated incredible wealth as well as incredible waste. The Superfund solution to this waste reveals how governments, communities, and individual perceive and respond to the material consequences of our capitalist and industrial decisions.
Tuition and Fees: $35
Participants will receive 3 OPI Renewal Units
