13th Annual CHE Graduate Symposium & Writing Workshop

March 13, 2021 @ 8:45 am - 4:15 pm

The 13th Annual CHE Symposium encourages all panelists and participants to look beyond and to engage in conversations that push boundaries and widen horizons in environmental studies. In these precarious times, the term beyond urges careful consideration of what has come to feel “normal” — in our everyday lives, in the research we conduct, and in our professional environments — and what might lie on the other side of the status quo. This interdisciplinary event features research that examines the margins of our fields, develops creative methodologies, and considers new directions for future work.

Graduate Student Panels

  • Food, Farms, and Fieldwork
  • Place and Poetics
  • Infrastructure and Resistance

CHE Faculty/Staff Roundtable

Samer Alatout, Emily Arthur, Joshua Calhoun, Rachel Gurney, and Erika Marin-Spiotta discuss their research beyond disciplinary boundaries and outside academia’s walls.

Writing for the Public Workshop*

This writing workshop invites participants to discuss two pieces of public-facing writing provided by graduate students Bri Meyer and Amanda Rose Pratt. The workshop and conversation will be facilitated by Noreen McAuliffe and Heather Swan, with special attention to strategies for reaching non-academic audiences.

*If you’d like to join the workshop audience for discussion and Q&A, please contact Addie Hopes at hopes@wisc.edu for copies.
