Lunchtime Learning Seminars
Lunchtime Learning Seminars aim to explore issues reflecting on science and the natural environment from eight cultural perspectives.
These perspectives include race/ethnicity, religion, language, nationality, social class, gender/sexual orientation, exceptionality, and age.
Seminars are held 2-3 times per semester from noon until 1:00 p.m. in Nifkin Lounge of Marshall Hall.
Examples of recent Seminars include a viewing of the film, Affluenza. Moderated by two ESF professors, it explored the impact of the wealthy U.S. economy, consumerism, and subsequent pull on the world’s natural resources.
Another Seminar examined a professor’s fact-finding trip related to wood production and forest sustainability in Cameroon and South Africa.
ALL SEMINARS INCLUDE FREE LUNCH FOR THE ESF COMMUNITY, WITH COLLEGE ID. No Pre-Registration required. To obtain your free lunch: arrive 10 minutes before each Seminar to Nifkin Lounge. Show your ESF ID to receive a $5.00 pass towards the purchase of lunch from the Gallery Snack Bar, located on the ground floor of Marshall Hall. Bring your meal to the Seminar in Nifkin.
