PHRE alum presenting at Oct. 20 Global Issues ColloquiumOctober 19, 2011
Stephanie Malin will be speaking at the October 20, 2011 Global Issues Colloquium on “Uranium Communities and Nuclear Renaissance: Energy and Environmental Justice on the Colorado Plateau.” Dr. Malin is a 2004 graduate of Truman State University with a double major in Sociology/Anthropology and English, and a minor in Philosophy/Religion. She recently completed her Ph.D. in Environmental and Natural Resources Sociology and Social Change and Development at Utah State University, and is currently doing postdoctoral research at Brown University. In her lecture she will critically examine recent proposals that a global renewal of nuclear energy – a nuclear renaissance – can serve as a viable solution to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and climate change impacts. She will focus on emergent social impacts of nuclear power on rural communities that are embedded within global systems, such as uranium markets. Dr. Malin will be speaking at 7 pm in Magruder 2001.
