2023/24 Colloquium Series

The goals of the Queen's School of Environmental Studies (SES) colloquium series are to: (a) encourage interdisciplinary knowledge exchange on topics and issues important within environmental studies (b) to encourage collaborations and foster a sense of community among SES faculty, students, and staff. All are welcome to attend.

The Environmental Studies Colloquium Series events are held on Thursdays at 2:30 PM in Kinesiology Room 106 unless otherwise noted. All faculty, staff, and students are strongly encouraged to attend. The format of seminars is flexible (e.g., research talk, panel or roundtable discussion, PechaKucha, skills-building workshops, career or alumni sessions). Creative and engaging seminars are especially welcome!
