Go8-C9 HDR Forum 2010 - Climate: Science + Humanities
Graduate Perspectives from Australia, China, and the US March 3-4 2010, Harvard University.
Co-sponsored by the Go8, the Harvard Committee on Australian Studies, and the Consortium of China 9 Research Universities. This conference brought together research leaders of the next generation from Australia, China and the US to share global perspectives on climate and climate change.
This Conference brought together 40 graduate students from Australia, China, and the US - leaders of the next generation - to present their global perspectives on climate and climate change from three very different national bases. The Conference aimed to highlight research work that displays genuine disciplinary crossover. Science students and Humanities/Social Science students exchanged research ideas, crossing disciplines, cultures, and continents.
From James Lovelock's Gaia thesis, to Tim Flannery's historical and ecological work, global discussion on climate and climate change spans humanities and science. And it often refers to the needs and perspectives of future generations. A total of 40 top students were selected from the three nations, whose research approach and/or object of inquiry links humanities and science in innovative ways. Half the participants were from humanities/social science disciplines, and half from the sciences.
Co-sponsored by the Go8, the Harvard Committee on Australian Studies, and the Consortium of China 9 Research Universities (C9). Convened by Professor Alison Bashford, Harvard Chair of Australian Studies, 09/10.
Two students from each Go8 University were funded to AU2500 travel + AU800 accommodation.
