Resource Economics and Environmental Sociology

Seminars and Brown Bags

The exchange of intellectual ideas and challenges through a seminar series is a strong asset to the development of state-of-the-art research. The Department of Resource Economics and Environmental Sociology (REES) Seminar Series brings together some of the experts in agricultural, resource, and environmental economics, as well as the sociology of environment, food, and natural resources. We will be having regular seminars throughout the Fall and Winter semesters.

Brown Bag workshops are generally held on Thursdays from 3:30 – 4:30pm. Seminars are generally held on Fridays from 3:30 – 5:00pm. All Seminars and Lectures take place in Room 550 General Services Building.
