dc.description Lecture delivered at Humboldt State University on November 10, 2016. Part of the Sustainable futures speaker series sponsored by the Schatz Energy Research Center and the Environment and Community Program. The history of the United Farm Workers is entangled with the rise of mid-century environmentalism. This talk considers the complex ideological relationship between mainstream environmentalism and the farmworkers movement in the 1960s and 1970s, paying particular attention to the environmentalist perceptions of the UFW, the UFW’s pesticide campaigns, and Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. en_US
