LEWISBURG, Pa. — Six Bucknell University faculty members will discuss a range of topics at the Environmental Snaptalk Symposium on Thursday, March 10, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the Traditional Reading Room of the Bertrand Library.

"These six professors will speak for eight minutes each on a variety of environmental and sustainability perspectives and research," said Jess Scott, a 2008 Bucknell graduate and an intern with the Bucknell University Environmental Center. The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.

  • Beth Duckles, assistant professor of sociology, will discuss "Looking Green and Being Green Using Sustainable Construction Practices."
  •  Kevin Gilmore, visiting assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, will examine "Implementation of the Total Dissolved Solids Restrictions on Marcellus Shale Flowback Water."
  •  Duane Griffin, associate professor of geography, will give the talk, "How Biodiversity Changed the Last Time Climate Ran Amok."
  • Tammy Hiller, associate professor of management, will describe "Introducing the New Managing for Sustainability Major in the School of Management."
  • Sheila Lintott, assistant professor of philosophy, will discuss "Aesthetic Dimension of the Interrelations between Ecological Science and Ethics: The Other Leopoldian Bridge."
  • George Shields, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, will give the talk, "Modeling the Growth of Clusters and Aerosols from First Principles: How Do We Understand Feedback Systems in a Warming Climate?"

"These snaptalks are part of the Environmental Center's goal of building connections between faculty and community members with similar interests, fostering the development of cross-disciplinary research, teaching and activity, and broadening our understanding of nature and the environment," Scott said.
