Unstable Ground: Climate Change, Conflict, and Genocide
April 19, 2018 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater 9220 Kirby Dr., Suite 100
Join Holocaust Museum Houston for a lecture by Dr. Alex Alvarez, author of "Unstable Ground: Climate Change, Conflict, and Genocide," for the fourth lecture of the Spring 2018 Public Lecture Series, Intergenerational Trauma & Memory: History Carried Through Generations. Climate change is increasingly impacting communities and nations around the world and challenging our ability to cope and adapt to new environmental realities. It also poses significant risk for the onset of communal violence, war and genocide. This talk examines some of the risk factors for violent conflict brought by climate induced stress, especially around resources, population displacement and borders.

Dr. Alex Alvarez earned his Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of New Hampshire in 1991 and is a Professor in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Northern Arizona University. From 2001 until 2003 he was the founding Director of the Martin-Springer Institute for Teaching the Holocaust, Tolerance and Humanitarian Values. His main areas of study are in the areas of collective and interpersonal violence, including homicide and genocide.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, and advance registration is requested. To RSVP online, visit http://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx.
