Event description
CRITIQUE Roundtable (virtual event)

About this event

In this roundtable event, we invite insights from teachers and researchers from a range of subject areas who broadly share an interest in training environmentally responsible students at the University of Edinburgh (UoE). The conversation will explore the imperatives, pressures, obstacles, and opportunities experienced by academics interfacing with students against the backdrops of ongoing environmental crises outwith the university, and various curriculum transformation imperatives within. The roundtable is intentionally exploratory and cross-disciplinary, with scholars from UoE representing Sociology; Science, Technology, and Innovation Studies; Politics and International Relations; and Architecture. This is the first event organised by the new, PhD student-led, Environmental Working Group, which operates as part of CRITIQUE: The Centre for Ethics and Critical Thought.

Speakers

  • Prof Elizabeth Bomberg (SPS, Politics and International Relations)
  • Dr Rachel Howell (SPS, Sociology)
  • Dr Eugenia Rodriguez (SPS, Science, Technology and Innovation Studies)
  • Dr Simone Ferracina (ECA, Architecture) – research profile
