Contributed by Marian Brown

The Sustainability Café on Monday, March 17th will feature Dr. Nancy Menning presenting “Climate Change and the Humanities.” The Café will be held in Center for Natural Sciences Room 112 at 4:00PM, in conjunction with the Environmental Seminar. The Spring 2014 Sustainability Café/Environmental Seminar series is focused on the concept of Campus Sustainability: Hiding in Plain Sight. 

Nancy Menning is an assistant professor in the department of Philosophy and Religion. Dr. Menning combines her academic background in social forestry and environmental studies with her work in religious studies to advance the environmental humanities and in particular her field of specialization, called either 'religion and ecology' or 'religion and nature.' Her recent work has emphasized religious aspects of climate change narratives, spiritual practices for cultivating environmental virtues, and rituals for mourning environmental losses.

“Teachable edibles” – local, organic and/or seasonal snacks – for the Spring 2014 Sustainability Café series are being sponsored by Ithaca College Dining Services whose motto is “Sustainability – Healthy – Fresh.” Please bring your reusable mug and fill up at the nearest drinking fountain or provide your own beverage of choice.

This event is free and open to the public.
