Craftivism: Merging Science, Art and Policy for Global Change, Olin 101

Dr. Katharine Owens will give an interactive talk about how change-makers can merge science, art, and policy to effect change on environmental issues of global importance. Dr. Owens has carried out numerous projects to collect and communicate data related to environmental issues to shape public policy. Her talk at Wofford is informed by her experiences in collaborative and participatory environmental advocacy with students and communities in the US and in India.

Dr. Owens is Associate Professor in the Department of Politics, Economics, and International Studies and Director of the University Interdisciplinary Studies program at the University of Hartford. She has undergraduate degrees in biology, anthropology, and studio art and a masters degree in environmental studies from the College of Charleston and a PhD in governance and sustainability from the University of Twente, the Netherlands. In 2015, working under a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, she created a open source college course on marine debris called Shore to Statehouse. In this experiential course, students used scientific methods to collect and catalog debris from Connecticut’s shoreline, and then shared the results with state-level policy makers. In 2019, Owens spent six months in Thiruvananthapuram, India, with the Fulbright Nehru program. In her time there, she collaborate with students and faculty at the University of Kerala to gather and communicate local data about the global issue of marine debris with politicians and policy makers. Under the auspices of a National Geographic Explorer grant, she also brought one hundred teachers from across India to Kerala for a training workshop in these experiential teaching and policy-advocacy methods.
