Will Potter will speak on “Dirty Secrets: The Environmental Impact of Factory Farming.” Potter, a Texas native and University of Texas graduate who earned a master’s degree in writing from Johns Hopkins University, is an award-winning investigative journalist and author who specializes in dissident politics and culture, the policing of dissent, and civil liberties post-9/11. His book Green Is The New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege exposes how non-violent animal rights and environmental protesters came to be classified by the FBI as “eco-terrorists.” This year he was selected as a TED Senior Fellow, and he recently was appointed the Marsh Visiting Professor in Journalism at the University of Michigan.
