    Levitt Hall 

    Featuring Dr. Carol Spaulding-Kruse 

    in conversation with Dr. Dian Nostikasari 


    “Promenade: An essay-in-progress on climate crisis, migration, and identity”   

    In her creative non-fiction essay, Carol Spaulding-Kruse combines personal and cultural testimony about her home state of California, her chosen state of Iowa, and the shifting definitions and allegiances affected by climate crisis. She argues that we need new frameworks for identity and relationality, what Donna Haraway calls our mutually constitutive and vastly unequal “entanglement.”
