Workshop to Explore Social Inequality in Energy, Environment, and Technology

Many UT faculty and researchers conduct research related to energy, environment, and technology. To connect researchers and support interdisciplinary efforts, the Center for the Study of Social Justice (CSSJ) will host a virtual workshop on Social Inequality in Energy, Environment, and Technology, on Wednesday, August 13, 2021.

The workshop will feature a series of faculty-led lightning talks, followed by an open discussion session to identify future research goals and steps.

Who Should Attend?

Researchers who are interested in studying environmental and energy justice, technology adoption, social inequality, and the impacts of these injustices on all factors of life and society are encouraged to attend.

The workshop may include topics on environment and technology on energy burdens, economic and socio-demographic, mental and physical health, the impacts of the pandemic, and more.

CSSJ hopes to bring potential collaborators together and stimulate the conversation around environmental and energy injustices, share ongoing research initiatives, and build a community of interest with whom the CSSJ can communicate emerging research opportunities.

Please register by August 4 to attend the workshop. If you are interested in submitting a 10-minute presentation, please register by July 28 and indicate your interest, presentation title, and a short summary on the registration form.
