Robert Brinkmann Delivers Lecture at Oxford

Dr. Robert Brinkmann, Director of the Sustainability Studies program in the Department of Geology, Environment and Sustainability, recently attended the Harris Manchester Summer Research Institute at Oxford University. During the week-long event, which is held each year at the end of June, organizers select one attendee to give a lecture to fellow participants. Brinkmann was this year’s honoree.

“It was a real honor to be invited to give a lecture at Oxford to such notable scholars,” Brinkmann said. “Few in attendance had a background on sustainability, but I think I demonstrated that sustainability research has links across the academy.” His lecture was titled “Sustainability and Scale: Making Sense of Sustainability Initiatives at International, National and Local Scales.”

Brinkmann opened his lecture with a homegrown joke about a climate change scientist and a climate change skeptic who were engaged in a heated debate in a British pub. To find out who won the debate, visit Brinkmann’s post in The Huffington Post.
