The Environment and the Modern World

Date and Time

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - 10:00am to 12:00pm


Please join us as renowned scholars Kate Brown, of the University of Maryland, and Robert Marks, of Whittier College, argue that the nation-state offers a limited intellectual and analytical framework to understand the global nature of the environment and environmental crises.

Brown, author of Nuclear Families, Atomic Cities, and the Great Soviet and American Plutonium Disasters (Oxford University Press), will speak about the mounting threats that the global nuclear industry poses to nature and civilization in the United States and Russia.

Marks, author of China: An Environmental History (Rowman and Littlefield), will speak about the environment, world history and China.

The event is cosponsored by the History Department, Pat Brown Institute for Public Affairs, the American Communities Program, and the Cross Cultural Centers at Cal State LA.
