Canisius received approximately 400 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which it began distributing on Sunday, April 11. The college discontinued its vaccination clinic on Tuesday, in compliance with recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to pause use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine following the emergence of a rare blood clotting disorder in six recipients.

Joshua Russell Releases First Book

Screen Shot 2021-04-12 at 3.16.44 PM.png

Joshua Russell, PhD, associate professor of animal behavior, ecology and conservation (ABEC) and director of the anthrozoology program, has published a new book titled Queer Ecopedagogies: Explorations in Nature, Sexuality, and Education. This is Russell’s first book.

The book emphasizes new connections between environmental education research and the growing bodies of literature dedicated to queer deconstructions of categories such as nature, environment and animal. Chapters engage with existing literature from queer ecology, queer theory and various explorations of sexuality and gender within the context of human-animal-nature relationships. The book deepens and diversifies environmental education by providing new theoretical and methodological insights for scholarship and practice across a variety of educational contexts. Queer ecopedagogies provide important critical points of view for educators who seek broader goals centered around social and ecological justice by encouraging counter-hegemonic views of bodies, nature and community.

Sponsored by the National Park Service, this webinar is part of the series “The Lives of Monuments: Victory and Alliance at Yorktown,” intended to investigate the ways in which Americans commemorate the Revolutionary War, whose 250th anniversary is fast approaching. The talk is based, in part, upon Chambers’ book Memories of War: Visiting Battlegrounds and Bonefields in the Early American Republic. Find more about Chamber’s book here.

In addition to Chambers, the program features Vivien Green Fryd, PhD. professor emerita at Vanderbilt University and Linda J. Williams, park ranger at Yorktown Battlefield Colonial National Historical Park. They will discuss how the Yorktown battlefield became a landscape of shared memory and how the Victory Monument’s statues tell a story about evolving national ideals.
