The SES seminars deal with a diverse range of environmental issues, with speakers from the humanities, social studies, arts, health sciences, engineering and natural sciences. The typical format is a 45 minute presentation by a speaker, followed by 15 minutes for audience questions, although there may be variations on this depending on the topic of the presentation. All are welcome to attend.

The seminars will take place twice a month on Thursdays from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm in BioSci 1102 (unless otherwise indicated below).  Please see below for dates.
