On January 31, Marcus DuBois King, Ph.D., and Elizabeth A. Andrews, J.D., will continue the conversation surrounding this year’s theme on “Cultural Resilience and Contemporary America” through two presentations – “Climate Justice: Sea Level Rise and Sinking States” and “Sea Level Rise: Policy Challenges for Coastal Communities.” The Ideas and Images Series event is free and open to the public.
King is the John O. Rankin Associate Professor in the Elliott School of International Affairs as well as the director of the Master of Arts in International Affairs program at The George Washington University. He is currently a senior fellow on the advisory board at the Center for Climate and Security. Andrews is a law professor and director of the Virginia Coastal Policy Center at the William and Mary Law School in Williamsburg.
The two presentations will piggy-back off the day’s workshop activities which will begin at 8am and go until 5pm. The workshop is called “St. Augustine: Community Resilience and Cultural Resources” and is part of the preparations for the upcoming Keeping History Above Water conference in May. The facilitator of the workshop, Lisa Craig of The Craig Group, will be seeking input from public officials, business leaders, community members and stakeholders on the shared heritage of the community and the community’s values. She will be assisted in the workshop by staff from FEMA. The workshop is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
The workshop is supported by Flagler College, the City of St. Augustine, The Craig Group, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The workshop will be held at the Willie Galimore Center, located at 399 Riberia Street, from 8am to 5pm. King and Andrews’ presentations will be held in the Lewis Auditorium, located at 14 Granada Street, from 7 to 8:30pm.
