One of the defining characteristic of the Institute is its intellectual community of scholars and graduate students from across the USF system. Whether during Friday Seminars, Annual Symposia, in a working research group, or spontaneously in the hallway, our faculty and fellows exchange ideas on an ongoing basis about the cultural and enviornmental changes underway in our world today.
Anthropocene Working Group
