Vandana Shiva is an Indian scholar, environmental activist, food sovereignty advocate, and alter-globalization author. Currently based in Delhi, she has authored more than twenty books, Including Who Really Feeds the World?, The Failures of Agribusiness and the Promise of Agroecology and Making Peace with the Earth. She is one of the leaders and board members of the International Forum on Globalization (along with Jerry Mander, Edward Goldsmith, Ralph Nader, Jeremy Rifkin) and a figure of the global solidarity movement known as the alter-globalization movement. She has argued for the wisdom of many traditional practices, as evidenced by her interview in the book Vedic Ecology. She received the Right Livelihood Award in 1993, an honor known as an "Alternative Nobel Prize".

Vijaya Nagarajan is an Associate Professor in the Department of Theology/Religious Studies and in the Program of Environmental Studies at the University of San Francisco.

Every day millions of Tamil women in southeast India wake up before dawn to create the kolam, a ritual design made of rice flour, on the thresholds of homes. This thousand year-old ritual welcomes and honors the goddesses Lakshmi and Bhudevi. Propelled by a lifelong interest and deeply informed research, Nagarajan provides a poetic and surprising entry into the layered complexities of Hindu culture. Braiding Tamil women's voices and the author's own stories, Feeding a Thousand Souls offers different knowledge traditions--beauty, history, gender, literature, religion, anthropology, mathematics, and ecology.

$12 advance, $15 door.
