About the conference:

The annual flagship event of the MUSE Initiative, the MUSE Conference provides a unique venue for sharing research, building new connections, and fostering interdisciplinary collaboration among all members of the University of Michigan community engaged in the broad range of sustainability and environment-related research. We welcome the involvement of U-M graduate students, as well as University leadership, faculty, and research fellows from all disciplines, including those in arts, humanities, engineering, and natural and social sciences.

The 2019 MUSE Conference will include interdisciplinary lectures by speakers including Perrin Selcer (History) and Barry Rabe (Public Policy), a round table panel on institutionalizing interdisciplinary environment and sustainability research (featuring Dean Jonathan Overpeck of SEAS; Dr. Jennifer Haverkamp, Director of the Graham Institute; and Dean F. DuBois Bowman of the School of Public Health), research presentations, panel discussions, a poster session, pre-conference skill-building workshops, and a public reception and keynote address by Dr. Missy Stults (Sustainability and Innovations Manager, City of Ann Arbor) at Zingerman’s Greyline event space.
