As the English Studies Series Speaker for spring 2011, Dr. Peter Blaze Corcoran presented his featured talk, "The Urgency of Mainstreaming Sustainability in Higher Education: The Promise of Earth Charter Ethics," at the CVA University Galleries.
Earlier that day, Dr. Corcoran presented "Global Environmental Education" which was followed by casual discussion with audience members.
Dr. Corcoran concluded his two day visit to the university with an interactive workshop at CTLT. It proved to be rare opportunity that brought together faculty and staff with community-based individuals as they listened to his presentation on Sustainability, Community Building, and Social Justice. Following his talk, Dr. Corcoran facilitated a dialogue among the participants about current projects and future possibilities for campus and community collaborations.
Dr. Corcoran's two-day visit was featured in a recent article for the ISU Vidette.
A special thank you goes to Dr. Kirstin Hotelling Zona and the department's Professional Growth Committee who worked tirelessly in putting together this program.
