Faculty Colloquium: Robert Gottlieb

Robert Gottlieb from Occidental College is the scheduled speaker for this week’s Faculty Colloquium. Robert is the Henry R. Luce Professor of Urban Environmental Studies and Director of the Urban and Environmental Policy Institute and will deliver his talk on Friday, September 7th at 3:30 pm. in the Hatfield Room.

Robert is also the co-director of Occidental’s LIASE (Luce Initiative on Asian Studies and the Environment) program,and is therefore a very appropriate speaker to help Willamette launch its own LIASE program.  He is the author of over 11 books, and considered one of the major founders of modern environmental studies in the United States, with a specific interest in urban sustainability and related questions of social and environmental justice.

A reception will follow the talk across the Mill stream in the Smith Gallery.
