    Green College Special Lecture
  • This talk, based on the speaker’s recent book, looks at rapidly changing relations between humans and the rest of nature on and around the Strait of Georgia. Beginning with British colonization in the mid-19th century, it traces change thematically. The themes are the movement of people and goods on the sea, dispossession of the sea’s Indigenous people, the sea’s once robust resource industries, waste dumping in the sea, and the sea as recreation space. In the end we come to see the many ways in which these five stories are interwoven.
