As part of the ESAC conference, please join us for the first-ever, national Canadian conference devoted to examination of the current state of environmental studies, in terms of both scholarship and teaching – May 30 and 31, University of Waterloo. As you can see from the attached agenda, themes to be discussed include:
1. What are the current contours of this emerging body of knowledge we call “environmental studies”?
2. How can we in the university do a better job linking our understanding with the environmental action so badly needed today?
3. What is the place of the interdisciplinary environmental studies unit in the discipline-based university?
The conference is presented as part of the annual Environmental Studies of Canada Association conference, as part of the CFHSS Congress. There is no charge to attend for those registered with the Congress and ESAC – lunch May 30, wine and cheese and refreshment breaks both days are provided for delegates.
Canada and the world need environmental studies today more than ever. To meet that need, we in the field have to continually examine our own thinking and practice. The May 30-31 conference lets us do just that. See you there!
