The Sustainability Studies Colloquium Series continues on Friday, February 27, with its third event: a faculty workshop on transdisciplinary collaborations and pedagogies in sustainability studies led by Tina Lynn Evans, PhD.

  • Friday, February 27
  • 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., including lunch
  • Breezedale Alumni Center Library

Evans is associate professor of Sustainability Studies at Colorado Mountain College, where she teaches in the Bachelor of Arts program in that field. She earned her PhD in Sustainability Education from Prescott College, and she serves on the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education Advisory Council. She is also the author of Occupy Education: Living and Learning Sustainability (2012, Peter Lang). 

In Occupy Education, Evans develops the critical social theory of sustainability and her critical pedagogy of sustainability. She then presents research on the fruitful application of these theories to sustainability education. Evans has focused much of her teaching on energy issues in society and globalized political economy. Her most recent writing has focused on transdisciplinary theory and practice in sustainability education.

Evans is also a contributing author to New Clear Vision and an avid participant in teaching about and developing more sustainable food systems. More information, including links to many of her publications, can be found at her Academia.edu website and on her personal website.
