To help kick off the brand new academic year at Wayne State, the Sustainability Scholars’ Forum is organizing our 2016 research event on Friday, September 9, 2-4 pm, at the Community Room in the Undergraduate Library, so please do save the date! (You might remember our hugely successful inaugural research symposium last year on “Social Institutions and Sustainability.”) This year, our theme is “Sustainability in Flint and Beyond,” and we have a wonderful schedule lined up for you.
This includes a Research Showcase of some cutting-edge social science research at WSU on sustainability, and a candid Conversation with Curt Guyette, the award-winning Investigative Reporter at ACLU Michigan, who helped uncover the ongoing Flint water contamination crisis. We hope you will attend, continue to forge close connections across disciplinary boundaries as we explore new meanings and formats of sustainability, and of course to support your colleagues’ work. Please share the attached flyer (PDF and PJPEG versions) widely with your colleagues and students, and encourage them to come by as well. Attendance is free and open to the public and WSU community.
Please do not hesitate to email any of the members on the Executive Committee (Rahul Mitra, Alisa Moldavanova, Tam Perry, David Fasenfest, Jefferey Ram) if you have any questions or suggestions.
