We are excited to again be holding the Tri-Co Environmental StudiesWorkshop, graciously funded by the Mellon Grant.  The 2014 Workshop will be held at Bryn Mawr on Tuesday, May 20 and Wednesday, May 21, 2014.  We have a full schedule of events (see below) in which participants not only get to listen to presentations of colleagues and students on our panels, but also to share their thoughts and ideas as well.  We are looking forward to germinating some innovative ways to spread Enivironmental Studies throughout the disciplines and to engage more of our colleagues on all three campus.  Those who participate in both days of the conference will receive a $250 stipend for their attendance ($125 for each day). 

REGISTRATION: Click here to register for the workshop.  The deadline for registration is May 16, 2014.  Along with your registration, you will be asked to complete a very brief survey and to submit a one or two paragraph bio of yourself detailing your research interests and how you see your interests connecting to the Environmental Studies program.
