Each semester, the Sustainability Minor hosts a faculty reading group to discuss a book of broad interest to Notre Dame's Sustainability Faculty Network. In recent semesters, we have read:
The Omega Principle: Seafood and the Quest for a Long Life and a Healthier Planet by Paul Greenberg
The Overstory by Richard Powers
The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben
Teaching Climate Change in the Humanities edited by Stephen Siperstein, Shane Hall, and Stephanie LeMenager
Drawdown edited by Paul Hawken
The Great Derangement by Amitav Ghosh
Oil and Honey by Bill McKibben
Reason in a Dark Time by Dale Jamieson
Reading group selections are often tied to visiting lectures by the authors, such as Bill McKibben's 22nd Annual Hesburgh Lecture in Ethics & Public Policy in 2016 and Amitav Ghosh's 23rd Annual Hesburgh Lecture in Ethics & Public Policy in 2017.
If you have a book to suggest and/or would like to co-host a reading group, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know as well if you would like to be added to the Sustainability Faculty List-Serv in order to receive notifications about reading groups and other faculty events.
