Interdisciplinary Lecture Series
The Fulton School of Liberal Arts supports this weekly series, featuring expert faculty from across SU who connect their disciplinary perspectives to a broader topic. Although the lectures connect with each other throughout the semester, each Monday’s presentation and discussion stands on its own, and no prior attendance is required. Members of both the campus and the community are welcome to attend. The lectures are also available as a one-credit pass/fail course with no prerequisites (as IDIS 205). The 2021 spring semester course begins on January 25th and meets on Mondays from 7:00 – 8:30 pm on Zoom. See below for a complete schedule and registration information.

- Course Description:
The weekly series explores relationships between sustainability and a wide range of inequalities to provide an overview of equity issues affecting progress toward environmental and social justice and sustainability.
SU faculty along with guest speakers and community members examine issues of equity and sustainability through multiple lenses, investigating socio-political, historical, environmental, economic, and other factors affecting progress toward a sustainable world.
Lectures and readings widen your understanding of how inequalities influence strategies to achieve sustainability, challenge your assumptions, and increase your awareness of issues of equity connected with environmental and social justice and sustainability.
Become informed about opportunities in the local community to put what you learn into action!
