About Bridge/Work 2018:
About the Conference
Conversations about climate change are increasingly layered, complex–and important. Bridge/Work 2018 will build on its core principle of connecting theory and practice to bring together voices that speak to the scientific data, spiritual imperatives, and societal implications of the climate change debate. How do varying disciplines — from meteorology and environmental science to theology and political science — connect around this timely topic? How can they help us think about our own roles in addressing a global concern?
You can read about our confirmed Keynote Speaker, Dr. Janel Hanrahan, here.
Opportunities for student participation:
Present your research.
All majors are welcome! Especially relevant research projects may come from meteorology, engineering, environmental science and political science, but we will review projects from across the sciences and humanities. Three to five students will be selected to share a short (10- to 15-minute) presentation on their findings and then engage in a cross-discipline conversation.
Become part of the Student Planning Committee.
We want to craft an event that is relevant, interesting and accessible. Toward that end, this will be our first year working with a Student Planning Committee to help shape the conference and, on the day-of, host our keynote speaker and panelists and provide event support.
Whether you are presenting or not, all students are welcome to join us for the conference. The tentative date is Saturday, April 7.
