Environmental buzzwords are part of our daily landscape. But what’s in a word? Researchers from the Posthumanism Research Institute (PRI) and the Environmental Sustainability Research Centre (ERSC) will gather to investigate the meaning of five key environmental terms and concepts: “transformation,” “resilience,” “sustainability,” “stewardship,” and “consumerism.”

Participate in the general discussion among presenters and audience members that will follow brief presentations on each term/concept.

Featuring Guest Speakers:

  • Julia Baird, Assistant Professor, ERSC & Department of Geography & Tourism Studies
  • Jessica Blythe, Assistant Professor, ERSC
  • Christine Daigle, Professor of Philosophy and PRI Director
  • Trevor Norris, Associate Professor, Department of Educational Studies and PRI Member
  • Ryan Plummer, Professor and ERSC Director

Hosted by: David Fancy, Associate Professor, Dramatic Arts and PRI Member

This event is hosted by the Brock University Environmental Sustainability Research Centre & Posthumanism Research Institute.
