Disruptive Environments Conference

Disruptive Environments: Academics, Activists, and Journalists in Conversation, was a two-day conference, held on April 10-11, 2008 at the MIT Museum. The conference focused on creating conversations among journalists, activists, and scholars from the sciences, humanities, and social sciences on interrelated environmental themes: climate change, environmental justice and health, ecological restoration and remediation. Conceived primarily by graduate students and faculty in the doctoral program of History, Anthropology, and Science, Technology, and Society, the conference aimed to engage MIT faculty and students, colleagues from other Boston-based institutions and beyond, and members of the general public. The goal of the conference was to create new avenues of interaction, develop better tools to conceptualize environmental questions, and inspire novel forms of action.
