CRITIQUE Exchange: Virtual Roundtable Training Environmentally Responsible Students

This roundtable event took place on 27 October 2021 and is an initiative of CRITIQUE’s Environmental Working Group. The roundtable was intentionally exploratory and cross-disciplinary, with scholars from UoE representing Sociology; Science, Technology, and Innovation Studies; Politics and International Relations; and Architecture. The discussion drew on insights from teachers and researchers who broadly share an interest in training environmentally responsible students at the University of Edinburgh.


Dr Rachel Howell (SPS, Sociology)

Dr Eugenia Rodrigues (SPS, Science, Technology and Innovation Studies)

Dr Simone Ferracina (ECA, Architecture)

Prof Elizabeth Bomberg (SPS, Politics and International Relations)

The conversation explored the imperatives, pressures, obstacles, and opportunities experienced by academics interfacing with students against the backdrops of ongoing environmental crises outwith the university, and various curriculum transformation imperatives within.
