The brunt of the Civil War in Cameroon is experienced by women and has a deep impact on the environment. This presentation draws on the socio-economic, cultural and ecological context of ecofeminism in English speaking Cameroon, a polity with a unique pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial experience. Professor Elisabeth Ayuk-Etang, in her talk, "Stories from Cameroon's Civil War: Women Exposing Environmental Impacts," argues that each phase of Cameroonian history impacts women–nature relations in its own unique way.

As part of International Education Week, Global Engagement welcomes Professor Elisabeth Ayuk-Etang, the Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF) Fellow at UC Santa Barbara for 2022-2023. Dr. Ayuk-Etang is the recipient of the Janet Hennessey Dilenschneider Scholar Rescue Award in the Arts.
