Nancy Unger

Both environmentalism and feminism have evolved since Rachel Carson was labeled a “hysterical woman” upon publishing Silent Spring 50 years ago, and Seattle native Nancy Unger is interested in the movements’ continued convergence. In her talk “American Women in Environmental History,” Unger will explore women’s influence (good and bad) on the environment, drawing from her new book, Beyond Nature’s Housekeepers: American Women in Environmental History, which incorporates previously unpublished archival sources.
