The Environmental Costs of the Treadmill of Destruction: Drugs, Militarism, and Deforestation in the Andes

When:
Tuesday, October 04, 2016 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Where:
Comal Room 116 / Philosophy Dialogue Room
Description:

Dr. Gregory Hooks, from the Department of Sociology at McMaster University, will present research on the important links between sustainability and issues of militarism present in contemporary Latin America. He raises important questions about how and why sustainability and militarism are intertwined and how they fit into the context of the larger "war on drugs." As part of the Philosophy Dialogue Series and in conjunction with the Common Experience, the presentation sheds light on one of the understudied aspects of militarism of the 20th and 21st centuries — the negative consequences of the military. Dr. Hooks is a leading expert in the field who clearly highlights this important experience and his presentations will feature key themes of the "Century of Conflict."
