Geography Awareness Week-Rescuing the Rougarou: Preserving culture in a changing climate  (Public Programs)

The Michigan State University Department of Geography, Environment and Spatial Sciences is planning a variety of activities for its annual celebration of Geography Awareness Week (November 13-17). The Department will host a spotlight event featuring Cajun folklorist and environmental activist Jonathan Foret for a special presentation entitled "Rescuing the Rougarou: Preserving Culture in a Changing Climate." As a native of Chauvin, Louisiana, Foret grew up in a culture-rich environment, from working on shrimp boats as a young boy to speaking Louisiana French with his grandmother. The event will explore the challenges of sustaining the traditional cultures of coastal Louisiana for future generations in the face of land loss and climate migration.

This event will take place on Thursday, November 16, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. at the Broad Business College Complex (N130) and is co-sponsored by the College of Social Science and WKAR.
