“Asia and the Environment” Research Salon
November 30, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Open to the Claremont Colleges Faculty & Staff:
Thursday, Nov. 30, 4-6pm
Location: The Hive (Studio 2)
Interested in exploring environmental issues in Asia, but don’t know where to begin?
Come MEET and EXPLORE the possibility of collaboration with other 5C faculty/staff.
SHARE what BIG QUESTIONS you are thinking about and find out who else is investigating similar questions.
LEARN about RESOURCES available to support collaboration.
The Research Salon is an informal gathering featuring:
- the creative energies of Dr. SHANNON RANDOLPH, environmental anthropologist and the new Associate Director at the Hive
- the institutional knowledge of Dr. MARTINA EBERT (PO, Senior Director of Foundation Relations and Strategic Initiatives)
- the expertise of Xiuying Zou (Honnold Library, Special Collections/Asian Library) & Jessica Davilla Greene (Honnold Library, STEM Team Leader)
EnviroLab Asia will also talk about a new initiative called “Research Pods.” Created with the goal of sparking creative, cross-disciplinary, and cross-campus collaborations, Research Pods are given nominal funds to informally gather to explore a topic or collaboration about environmental issues in East and/or Southeast Asia. Funds may go towards lunch, coffee, books, and/or group field trips, etc. Each pod should ideally have 4 faculty/staff members from different campuses and different disciplines. Funds of up to $500 are allotted to each pod. After completion of activities, Research Pods will be asked to write a 1-page summary of activities and outcomes.
In the future, EnviroLab Asia will have a call for applications for faculty/staff ‘Research Labs” that offer $25,000 in funding per Lab. We hope Research Pods would be a good way to start towards a Research Lab application.

Light refreshments will be provided.
