Disruptive Environments: Academics, Activists and Journalists in Conversation seeks to engage journalists, activists, and scholars from a variety of disciplines in conversation about current environmental issues: climate change, environmental justice and health, ecological restoration and remediation. The conference is organized by graduate students and faculty in the History, Anthropology, and Science, Technology, and Society program, and sponsored by MIT’s Program in Anthropology, STS Program and the Deans of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (SHASS) and of the School of Science.
