Our sense of connection to a place informs our values and approaches to conflict over resource and land use in our communities. What meanings have Oregonians attached to different places in the state, and how have these attachments shaped our desire to both use and preserve our natural resources?
This is the focus of “Your Land, My Land: Using and Preserving Oregon’s Natural Resources,” a presentation and conversation with Portland State University professor Veronica Dujon on Sunday, May 22, 2010 at 3:00 pm at the Bend Public Library. This program is sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
Dujon is professor and chair of the department of sociology at Portland State University. She teaches researches, and publishes in the areas of environmental sociology with a focus on contests over declining natural resources, sociology of globalization, and women in the global economy. Oregonians are known for a fierce sense of independence and a rugged individuality.
