FIREtalks: Join the interdisciplinary conversation – proposal submissions (All Students)

UBC Research Commons invites you to submit your proposals for 5 minute presentations for the following upcoming FIRE Talks:

Sustainable Practices: 29th of November at 4:00 pm

Submit Proposals by: 15th of November 2012

Join the Discussion:

We all have a responsibility to promote a sustainable society for future generations, but how do we promote it through human rights or cultural continuity? Do corporate governance, or environmental conscientiousness support sustainability? As graduate students, the opportunities to engage in such initiatives are many; so, we want to hear about your experiences and opinions about sustainable practices. What do you have to say about sustainable practices?

Care and Healing: 16th of January at 5:00 pm

Submit Proposals by: 2nd of January 2013

Join the Discussion:

Can we only heal individuals or is possible to heal entire cultures? Are scientific and holistic approaches to care and healing necessarily mutually exclusive? Is preventive always better than restorative care? As graduate students, many of us are involved in care and healing, and we can think about these terms in many different ways. Present your ideas, research or opinions at the first FIRE Talk of 2013!

Submit your proposals for any of these talks at:

Comments are closed, but trackbacks and pingbacks are open.
