Global Ecologies: Nature, Narrative, Neoliberalism brought scholars from UCLA and beyond together to examine globalization and the environment in order to address the interdisciplinary implications of environmental study. Working in diverse fields such as African, Caribbean, Latin American, South Asian, and Pacific Island Studies, participants analyzed issues in environmental studies across a number of geographical and national contexts and addressed critical questions about the role narrative can play in illuminating the links between the environmental concerns and the history of colonialism and globalization. The conference emphasized international environmental issues and highlighted the importance of how attention to narrative form is vital to understanding and enhancing the impact on public understandings of environmental crisis.
