Antrim Caskey to Lecture at ETSU

So, if you have not seen the photo-documentary, Dragline, and you are a proponent for the ending of Mountain Top Removal coal mining, the first thing you need to do after reading this blog is log on to Appalachiawatch.org.

Antirm- camera in hand- overlooking a "moonscape" Antrim is the artist/activist behind Dragline and the founder of Appalchia Watch.org, a “On the Ground Reporting Project in the Heart of West Virginia”.

The exciting part of all of this is that Antrim Caskey is  coming to ETSU on April 11th to present her work.  While she is here she will also participate in a concioussness-raising event whereby student leaders from ETSU will gather to share their experience as activists- while learning from Antrim’s visionary work on Mountain Top Removal Coal Mining.
I will post details as they become available.  Special thanks to 2 programs on campus that are making this presentation possible: Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies, and The Women’s Studies Program

About etsuwomenstudies

This blog is a collaborative effort from the students, faculty, and feminist souls in the East Tennessee State University Women's Studies Department. We simply want to share daily thoughts with the world and encourage not only feminist thought, but awareness, tolerance, diversity, equality, justice, and social progress. Women's Studies is an exciting, interdisciplinary area of study that celebrates women's lives. It examines how diverse women have contributed to history, social processes, culture, politics and economics, as well as how all of these have shaped women's experiences. Our program provides new ways of looking at common assumptions about femininity and masculinity and teaches students how to connect what they study with how they live and work. We also explore how gender intersects with ability, age, class, culture, ethnicity, nationality, race, religion, and sexuality. Our Leadership through Diversity focus promotes a creative struggle for justice and equality. We train graduates to be leaders in both civic engagement and the workforce. The Women's Studies Program at ETSU is comprised of dedicated faculty and staff and socially conscious students coming together from a wide range of disciplines.
