April 19, 2012 BOYER COLLOQUIUM: “ENDGAME: AN EVENING WITH DERRICK JENSEN”. Student/Conference Center, Highland Community College, 2998 W. Pearl City Road, Freeport. 7 pm.  Derrick Jensen, an award-winning author and environmental activist, will discuss the attention-getting premises of his non-fiction work “Endgame,” including why industrial civilization is not sustainable and how economics dictate social policies. Not one for coddling his audiences, Jensen offers a revolutionary message of change capable only through a dramatic restructuring of society. As reviewed in the San Francisco Chronicle, Jensen is a “formidable thinker unafraid of showing us, with unsettling precision, the countless ways we are allowing ourselves and our planet to be killed.” The Boyer Colloquium, an annual event sponsored by the late Dr. M. E. Boyer, was created in 1994 to help students and communities understand the importance of the inter-relationships between ethics, economics, and ecology. True to this mission, Jensen’s improvisational style and unconventional approach easily weave together seemingly unrelated issues for a moving audience experience. The Boyer Colloquium Committee believes that if communities comprehend the issues, the history of previous decisions and ramifications of prior actions, they will be better positioned to make informed decisions.
