My family and I have returned from Sweden and it's already like we never left...
I wanted to post this summary of what is to come at the Program for Society and the Environment in 2018. We are resuming the Workshop in Society and the Environment and have a great interdisciplinary list of speakers scheduled.
Here's the schedule (more details about each speaker will be posted as we get closer to each date under Workshop on our site):
January 31– Johannes Urpelainen, Ph.D., Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Professor of Energy, Resources and Environment; Founding Director, Initiative for Sustainable Energy Policy; Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. “The Political Economy of Protected Areas in the Brazilian Amazon.”
February 28 – Joseph McCartney Waggle, Ph.D. Candidate, PSE Fellow, Department of Sociology, University of Maryland. “Scientists Say: A Case Study of Scientific Expertise in a Post-Modern Political Discourse.”
March 28 – Andrew Cheon, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of International Political Economy, Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. “Developing Champions: Understanding the Global Expansion of National Oil Companies.”
April 25—Nancy Sonti, Ecologist, USDA Forest Service; Ph.D. Candidate, PSE Fellow, Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture, University of Maryland. “Neighborhood Perceptions and Use of Baltimore’s Forest Patches.”
I hope to see everyone at our first Workshop later this month!
