    Building Worlds in Uncertain Times: Power, Culture, Pedagogy: Recent events have rocked the ways in which we—as thinkers, creators, educators, humans—move through the world, interact and communicate with others, and envision a sustainable and just future. In response to the uncertainties wrought by evolving relationships with our cities and geographies, climate change, the pandemic, and global calls for racial justice, the 2019-2021 Green College Leading Scholars seek to think together how we understand and represent our lived environments and how to build (toward) a world that is both more equitable and less destructive. We invite you to rethink—with and against us—the relation between arts and space, structures of power, waste societies, pedagogical practices, and what it means to inhabit the world.
