The College of Humanities and Sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute together with the Institute on Critical Climate Change (IC3) from SUNY Albany collaborated on a Critical Exchange Workshop March 25, 2009 at the RPI campus. This workshop, organized by Dean John Harrington, Hillary Savoie in consultation with Professor Mary Valentis and funded by an Imagining America Critical Exchange grant, consisted of a series of panels addressing the following questions:
- How can we develop an academic language for communicating across disciplines about the importance, relevance, and specifics of our work?
- What forms of output can cross-disciplinary research take and what role does this work can take in a university setting?
- How can we move forward in incorporating community-based research and service scholarship at RPI?
The event was held in the Fischbach Room in Folsom Library at RPI from 1:00 -5:00pm. Participants included faculty and graduate students from RPI and the University at Albany. Professors Kir Kuiken, Mike Hill, and Mary Valentis of SUNY Albany represented the Institute on Critical Climate Change.
