Monmouth University’s third annual climate crisis teach-in event, “Wake Up to Climate Change,” will occur in a series of in-person and virtual events from Monday, Oct. 4 through Friday, Oct. 8. The schedule includes programming about the impact of climate change from diverse academic perspectives including health policy, homeland security, geology, public policy, literature, biological systems, nursing, healthcare, and spatial planning.
Panel discussions include “Climate Rhetoric,” led by student enrolled in “History of the English Language (EN 443),” and “How do we convince the public/politician to do more on climate change?,” which includes Assistant Professor Stephen Chapman from the Department of Political Science and Sociology, Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray, and Associate Professor Marina Vujnovic from the Department of Communication. Professor Heide Estes from the English Department will moderate.
While in-person events are limited to registered students and members of the University community, members of the public are invited to attend virtual events throughout the weeklong interdisciplinary teach-in. The event is organized by Associate Dean Catherine N. Duckett, Ph.D., and sponsored by the School of Science.
