PhotoJoin the UofL Sustainability Council for our Fall Sustainability Roundtable series on alternate Tuesdays from 4:00-4:50pm (8/30, 9/13, 9/27, 10/18, 11/1, 11/15, 11/29).

We continue the fall series Sept. 13th, with our special guest, Dr. Angela Storey, Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, and Chair of the UofL Sustainability Council. Her research examines the politics of the natural and built environment, with a focus on community activism and participatory processes of urban governance.

Since 2010, Dr. Storey has been conducting research in Cape Town, South Africa that explores the politics of water, sanitation, and electricity infrastructures in informal settlements. Dr. Storey will discuss ethnographic work on environmental topics, research methods and her own varied research projects.

No pre-registration is required. The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers throughout the year, followed by 20-30 minutes of open discussion.

Anyone with an interest in sustainability can give talks at the speaker series and participate in the audience, including faculty, staff, students, practitioners, teachers, government officials, and members of the public.

If you would like to give a presentation, or would like to hear a particular speaker, please contact Tamara Sluss.
