Fall Speaker Series Lineup

SERC is pleased to host an exciting fall semester lineup for the Energy, Environment, and Society speaker series. This is the second year for the series, and we look forward to building on last year’s success. The series is organized in conjunction with the Environment and Community Graduate Program’s “Sustainable Futures” speaker series.

Speakers in the fall series include Dr. Anna Zalik of UC Berkeley and York University (October 5), Dr. Evan Mills of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (November 2), and Dr. Sarah Goldthwait of Humboldt State University (November 30). All of the presentations will take place on the respective dates from 5:30 to 7:00 PM in Founders Hall Room 118.

The talks will cover subjects ranging from oil and conflict in Nigeria and Mexico (Dr. Zalik) to the biological implications of climate change in the world’s oceans (Dr. Goldthwait). The presentations will also include a discussion of the socioeconomic and environmental dimensions of fuel based lighting in developing countries (Dr. Mills).

Video and DVD recordings of many of the lectures in this series are available in the HSU Library’s media collection. For more information about the series visit www.schatzlab. org/speaker_series.html.
