Environmental Studies Colloquium

The Environmental Studies Colloquium is a monthly speaker series hosted by Antioch University New England (AUNE). The aim of the Colloquium is to convene Environmental Studies graduate students and faculty together around emerging scholarship or innovative practice in the field, and to provide a common topic for learning and exchange among our interdisciplinary scholars.

The Colloquium provides an opportunity for visiting experts to share their work and life experience with an audience, and to engage one on one with interested students and faculty over lunch. The topics addressed by the invited Colloquium speakers reflect a range of environmental studies ; from the environmental sciences and social sciences to the environmental humanities, arts, and media ; and often focus on current research, writing, or innovative applied practice.

The format of the Colloquium includes an address to the Environmental Studies community at AUNE once per month on a Friday, at 11:30, when doctoral and master’s students are on campus. The 45-minute talk or presentation is followed by a 15-minute question and answer period. This speaker is invited to join the faculty and student hosts for continued conversation over lunch, and may also visit afternoon classes or meet with students for individual appointments.
