Dr. Sarah Wald presents “A Universal Killer? Rachel Carson’s ‘Silent Spring’ and the United Farm Workers’ Pesticide Campaign.” Sarah Wald is Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies and English at the University of Oregon. Her talk considers the complex ideological relationship between mainstream environmentalism and the farmworkers movement in the 1960s and 1970s, paying particular attention to the environmentalist perceptions of the United Farm Workers, the UFW’s pesticide campaigns, and Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring.” Location: ArtB 102, HSU campus
