Event description

Description

Presented by the Sydney Environment Institute.

Join the Sydney Environment Institute in celebrating the rich career of retiring historian, and Co-Director of the Institute, Professor Iain McCalman, as we launch the 'Iain McCalman Lecture’.

From Charles Darwin to the Great Barrier Reef; the sciences to the humanities; Iain McCalman established himself as an internationally renowned cultural historian, an award-winning author and a highly accomplished professor of history and the humanities.

The Sydney Environment Institute will acknowledge these contributions with an annual lecture aimed at highlighting early-career researchers who, like Iain McCalman, are working across disciplinary boundaries to impact both scholarship and public discourse.

The inaugural lecture will be given by Dr Frances Flanagan, 2019 University of Sydney Fellow and research affiliate of the Sydney Environment Institute. Flanagan’s research investigates the past and future of work, environmentalism, gender and social change and her talk titled, ‘Work and belonging in a warming world: the long view when time is short’, will explore how the workforce can become a site of social and ecological renewal.

Professor David Schlosberg, Co-Director, Sydney Environment Institute, will open the event.
