TIP Talks and Decolonising the Anthropocene Events

18 October 2021

CEJ event schedule

The Centre for Environmental Justice (CEJ) welcomes you to the following virtual events this semester. We would like to extend a particularly warm welcome to all new postgraduate research and taught students, we hope you are able to join us.

TIP Talks: The Thought-in-Progress series gives the presenter a chance to test out a new and emerging idea, there doesn’t have to be a fully formed paper and it is open to anyone who has a research problem they’d like to present in environmental law and/or politics. Contact Ben Pontin in the School of Law and Politics if you would like to join or give a TIP talk next semester.
