Dr. April Anson
Nature will heal when we heal the white supremacist vision of nature as an object to be extracted, resource to be mined, concept to racialize, sacrifice, make killable.
Dr. April Anson is an Assistant Professor of Public Humanities at San Diego State University, core faculty for the Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs, and affiliate faculty in American Indian Studies. Her research explores the historical and ongoing connections between climate change, white supremacy, and political sovereignty while also attending to Indigenous environmental justice traditions that eclipse those relations. She is the co-founder of the Anti-Creep Climate Initiative, co-author of Against the Ecofascist Creep, a public resource for fighting everyday ecofascism, and was a Mellon postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania with the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities. Dr. Anson’s work has appeared or is forthcoming in boundary 2, Resilience, Environmental History, Western American Literature, and others. She is committed to anti-racist and anti-colonial knowledge production and social movements.
