The HMEI Faculty Seminar Series is a forum for Princeton faculty to discuss their research in the context of environmental science and current events. A total of 8 Faculty Seminars are held annually including 4 seminars each in the fall and spring semesters. Topics cover a wide range of subject matter and are closely aligned with the featured speaker’s current research activities. Past topics have included insights and perspectives on climate change, extreme weather, water dynamics, policy solutions, carbon sequestration, green technology, renewable energy, biodiversity, infectious diseases and global health, urban infrastructure, environmental history, environmental chemistry and ocean biogeochemistry.

HMEI Faculty Seminars are held in 10 Guyot Hall, beginning at 12:30 p.m. and last approximately 1 hour including Q&A with the audience. A buffet lunch is held in the Guyot Atrium for seminar attendees beginning at noon. The events are free and open to the public. Seminar proceedings are also livestreamed via Zoom and recordings of the seminars are made available on our website following each event. Additional information including details on speakers and upcoming talks can be found here.

Organized by Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment (C-PREE) and co-sponsored by HMEI, the David Bradford Seminar Series highlights scholars and practitioners from various fields working on critical research related to environmental and energy policy.

Bradford Seminars are held weekly on Mondays at 12:15 p.m. in 300 Wallace Hall throughout the fall and spring semesters. In-person attendance is restricted to PU ID card holders and their guests. All others are invited to watch the seminars over livestream on Media Central.

University faculty, researchers, and students meet weekly throughout the academic year for Conversations on Environment, Responsible Energy, and Life (CEREAL). CEREAL is organized as a round-table discussion that features presentations by members of the University community and guests on a broad range of current and emerging environmental topics. Participants are expected to commit to attending the forum on a regular basis.

The Environmental Humanities and Social Transformation Colloquium aims to build an intellectual community of Princeton scholars and graduate students from all backgrounds whose work is animated by — or intersects with — issues central to the environmental humanities. Artists, scholars, writers, photographers, journalists, and activists from Princeton University and around the world are invited to lead intimate discussions related to the study and representation of how people shape — and are shaped by — their interactions with the environment.

The colloquium is organized by Rob Nixon, the Thomas A. and Currie C. Barron Family Professor in Humanities and the Environment and professor of English and the High Meadows Environmental Institute, and Anne McClintock, the A. Barton Hepburn Professor of Gender and Sexuality Studies and the High Meadows Environmental Institute.

The Environmental Humanities and Social Transformation Colloquium is held throughout the fall and spring semesters. Events are open to the public.
