Interview with Robert Jensen on "Coping with the Cascading Crises of Our World"

This interview with professor Robert Jensen explains his talk on Coping with the Cascading Crises of Our World and explores solutions to some of our most important problems.

Robert Jensen, a professor in the UT School of Journalism and author of Arguing for Our Lives: A User's Guide to Constructive Dialogue, will speak on "Coping with the Cascading Crises of Our World" in the University of Texas Informal Classes Odyssey lecture series.

 With economic and ecological crises deepening, more people are facing the harsh reality that modern high-energy/high-technology ways of living—along with the economic system out of which they emerged—have to change if the Earth is to sustain a large-scale human presence in the future. If the American "way of life" is incompatible with a sustainable future, how do we start to talk about, and create, a new way of being in the world? In this talk, Robert Jensen will tell the story of a "plain radical," a person whose political and personal choices offer a painfully honest but hopeful example.

Location: Thompson Conference Center, University of Texas, Austin
