Daniel P. Schrag, Sturgis Hooper Professor of Geology in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, and Director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, will deliver a lecture as part of the Radcliffe Institute's series about water.
The Radcliffe Institute is hosting a new cross-disciplinary speaker series by Harvard faculty on topics related to water. These will be relatively informal presentations, followed by discussion with attendees, on topics that approach water from multidisciplinary perspectives. The collegial events are intended to present, and potentially to link, faculty interests, in order to learn more about research currently underway and to foster connections across Harvard schools.
The talks will focus on both national and international topics. They may include issues of water policy, treatment and management, technology, water and migration, water and religion, urban planning, hydrology, water and business, art and water, environmental law, public health and disease, water and conflict, land-use, economic growth, history, etc. The speaker series is designed to be multidisciplinary rather than solely scientific and to complement other offerings throughout the University.
