School of the Environment Winter Speakers Seminar - (ESM 407/507)

Winter 2018 Seminar
With generous support from the Institute for Sustainable Solutions, I am happy to again host the SOE winter quarter seminar speaker series.  Below you will also find information on winter quarter SOE speaker series going back to the winter 2015, including videos of each seminar.  This year we will capitalize on the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences research cluster theme of community resilience in socio-ecological systems.  I have asked each speaker to present on an aspect of their current research that they are excited about, and to reflect on how the concepts of “community”, “resilience”, and “social-ecological systems” intersect with their research.  I have invited speakers from across CLAS departments to showcase relevant research ongoing in our college as well as speakers from outside of PSU to bring new ideas to our community. Each seminar will be video recorded, and videos and powerpoint presentation slides will be posted below.
