GCSC Seminar: "Rethinking Sustainability to Deal with the Climate Change Trickster: Resilience Theory, the Anthropocene, and the Example of Marine Fisheries"

Tuesday, August 30, 2016, 4 - 5pm
Aline Wilmot Skaggs Biology Building (ASB)

Climate change and the Anthropocene call into question the efficacy of sustainability goals embedded in environmental and natural resources law and policy. This talk, based on Professor Craig's and Professor Melinda Harm Benson's forthcoming book, THE END OF SUSTAINABILITY, offers a new framework for natural resources law and policy in the 21st century through the lens of marine fisheries management. Specifically, this talk will look at the discipline of resilience theory, which could helpfully update the mechanistic view of nature embedded in U.S. environmental law, and the cultural narrative of the trickster, which could more helpfully inform U.S. responses to a world of unpredictable and continuous natural change.

Reza Ali Khazeni Memorial Lecture in Iranian Studies

Friday, September 9, 2016, 6:30 - 9:30pm
Humanities Building - Carolyn Tanner Irish (CTIHB)

About the Lecture The Reza Ali Khazeni Memorial Foundation, College of Humanities and the Middle East Center at University of Utah are the co-sponsors of the Reza Ali Khazeni Memorial Lectures in Iranian Studies at the University of Utah. The goal of the lecture series is to introduce the community to Iran’s rich civilization and heritage. The Reza Ali Khazeni Memorial Foundation was established in the memory of Reza Ali Khazeni, who was born in Tehran, Iran on June 7, 1968 and died in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 17, 1990. Reza Ali was deeply interested in nature and the preservation of the environment, and was concerned with social injustice and care of the elderly, homeless and the oppressed. He enjoyed traveling and learning about different cultures. Reza Ali appreciated the arts and the humanities and was particularly intrigued by philosophy, in which he earned a B.A. degree, cum laude, from Boston University. He was also interested in the history, culture and civilization of the country of his birth. The goal of the Foundation is to assist individuals and organizations through grants, scholarships, and awards in the study, experience, and public discourse of these issues. The lecture series is a partial realization of this goal. The Reza Ali Khazeni Memorial Lecture in Iranian Studies is devoted to the various facets of Persian culture and civilization. Leading scholars of Iranian studies are invited to deliver a lecture at the University of Utah on a subject of their expertise within the domain of Persian culture. The topics will range from history to religion and mysticism, from philosophy to art and architecture, from literature to music, and from the study of Iranian society to political and social thought. The speakers will be selected to ensure that the many different facets of Persian culture and history will be covered. All lectures are free and open to the public.
