Announcements

Please join us on Monday, April 10th for "Ecologies of Injustice" -- a panel discussion hosted by The Global Forum on Urban and Regional Resilience.

This panel discussion brings together scholars at Virginia Tech whose work intersects the concerns of environmental justice, with community members, and interested individuals to increase our understanding of the diffuse ways that environmental injustice is experienced in our contemporary world. The conversation encompasses political, economic, social, and environmental factors that precipitate disproportionate exposure to environmental risk or access to resources and is designed to build bridges across the Virginia Tech campus and greater-Blacksburg community.

-----

The 40th Annual Appalachian Studies Conference will be held March 9-12 at Virginia Tech, and will feature a keynote address by Dr. James Hansen, the director of the Climate Science, Awareness and Solutions Program at Columbia University.  Learn more about the conference here.
