2021 lectures are presented virtually, Thursdays at 11am ET.
Cary Institute’s Scientific Seminar Series provides a forum for engaging with researchers from around the world. Lectures are geared toward an academic audience, with a focus on current scientific advances as they relate to ecosystem science, environmental management, and science education. This year’s lectures will be presented virtually, and include moderated Q&A. Lectures are held on Thursdays at 11AM EDT and are free and open to all. Registration is required to access the Zoom credentials.
This spring, Cary Institute postdoctoral researchers have organized a set of talks and workshops that focus on justice in ecology. We acknowledge that academic pursuits of ecological knowledge have largely been centered around white and colonizing paradigms. The silencing of Indigenous and marginalized voices has resulted in biases and injustices in environmental research and applications. In these talks and in corresponding workshops, we will build on current momentum to reflect upon the history of the discipline and examine the ways in which research can contribute to material projects of decolonization and social justice.
