Multispecies flourishing across borders (Hybrid Event)

Join us in this special presentation by Drs. Columba Gonzalez-Duarte and Juanita Sundberg on their research journey across three settler colonial states: Mexico, USA & Canada where they examine possibilities for new forms of multispecies flourishing.

In this presentation, Drs. Columba Gonzalez-Duarte and Juanita Sundberg jwill examine the possibilities for shared forms of flourishing across three settler colonial states: México, the United States of America, and Canada. From the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve in central México to Leamington, Ontario, the Point Pelee’s Caldwell band, and Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge, the presenters illustrate how conservation projects and agribusiness across North America displace nodes of multispecies reciprocity and care, exposing monarch butterflies, Indigenous communities, Mexican migrant workers, and Sonoran Desert soils to violence. At stake in these multiple sites of care and suffering is our own exposure to climate change and extinction. Ultimately, we argue, considering vulnerability in relation – beyond humans and borders – offers possibilities for new forms of multispecies flourishing.
