Interdisciplinary Sustainability AALAC / AASHE Hub Workshop
February 28 - March 3, 2019
Interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship are needed to address complex problems in social-ecological systems (SES) and achieve a safe and just space for humanity. Concepts and competencies of SES have historically been addressed individually from overlapping disciplines. This Spring 2019 workshop will explore the above challenges and identify what faculty are doing along disciplinary SES gradients, find solutions for stronger and more transparent collaboration, and establish a network of interdisciplinary SES scholars.
The workshop will begin on Feb. 28th with an optional social gathering on Thursday evening. Friday and Saturday will be full working days (~8-5) to share current research and scholarship and write a manuscript and draft proposal. After these productive days, we will relax in downtown Greenville, S.C. and on the Furman Farm in the evenings. We will conclude on Sunday morning with time for participants to return home.
This workshop targets faculty who participate in interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship around social-ecological systems in the humanities and natural and social sciences.
