Dr. Jennifer Thomson: Gaia Has A Fever

Submitted by Alexandra Colley Dusablon on April 29, 2020 - 1:28pm

Dr. Jennifer Thomson, Associate Professor of History at Bucknell University, gave a lecture moderated by History Department Chair Glennys Young in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. This event was hosted by the UW Department of History, the UW College of the Environment, the UW Office of Sustainability, and the UW Nature & Health Initiative. 

The 2020 UW Earth Day celebrations aimed to invite people from all backgrounds to engage in a collective reflection and transform Earth Day into a more-than-a-day opportunity to connect those who are interested in environmentalism with people interested in social justice. This effort continues through the 50 for 50 pledge and the Intersectionality Project; find out more online at
