Jennifer Atkinson interviewed on "Teaching in the Age of Eco-Grief"


IAS faculty member Jennifer Atkinson spoke with Sarah Jaquette Ray, producer of the podcast Big Planet, Big Feels.  Ray met Atkinson when she gave a talk last December at UW on eco-grief and the climate generation.  Ray learned about Atkinson’s course on environmental depression, sparking an interest in interviewing her for this podcast. The class was so radical, it was covered on the front page in The Seattle Times.  Atkinson recently followed up on the experience in writing an editorial called “Addressing Climate Grief Makes You a Badass, Not a Snowflake,” discussing her experience teaching the seminar and getting pushback from readers of the article.
