How should we teach depressing material about climate change and social injustice to college students the very generation saddled with "fixing" all our problems in the current political and historical moment? Sarah Jaquette Ray, Humboldt State University, focuses on her ethnographic research and describes strategies for connecting students' emotional responses to the material in order to combat apathy and despair and to generate empowerment to effect positive change. She ends her talk by asking the audience to resist nihilism and misery in favor of feelings of hope and collective empowerment. Recorded on 12/04/2019. (#35473)
