By April 6, 2021 No Comments

Former IC director Chip Oscarson guest hosts an episode featuring a discussion with Prof. George Handley about the 2016 documentary Death by a Thousand Cuts. The documentary considers the complex relationship between Haiti and the Dominican Republic along their shared border. The situation on the border discussed by Handley and Oscarson points to the ways that environmental issues are often caught up in a web of historical, racial, social, colonial, and economic forces.
