Rethinking Space and Place in Critical Environmental Justice through Critical Race Geographies

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups: Latinx Geographies Specialty Group, Black Geographies Specialty Group
Organizers: Cristina Faiver-Serna, Erin Goodling, Tianna Bruno
Chairs: Cristina Faiver-Serna


Scholarship at the intersection of Critical Environmental Justice studies and Critical Race Geographies has begun to bring depth and nuance to understandings of racial violence of, and resistance to, environmental racism. Scholarship situated within Black and Latinx Geographies, in particular, has made possible critical scholarly perspectives on the simultaneous devaluation of bodies of color and the environment, by drawing on ways of understanding space and place that have been traditionally silenced within Geography. We build on this work to ask: How might critical race geographies enable deeper engagement in critical studies of environmental injustice and counter-hegemonic knowledge of space and place?
