Speaker Nominations for People and Oceans Speaker Series Now Open

The Ocean Frontier Institute’s Social Sciences and Humanities (OFI-SSH) Working Group invites nominations of potential speakers for its People and Oceans Speaker Series. 

The series will explore key issues and questions arising from social science and humanities research relevant to the North Atlantic. It will launch in September 2021, with presentations and discussions (each running approximately 90 minutes) taking place on a monthly basis between September 2021 and May 2022. 

Nominations should consist of a short (maximum 1 page) description of the proposed speaker(s) using the Nomination Form. Please include proposed names of up to three discussants who might be interested in reviewing the presentation in advance, and whose reflections will be used to kickstart the broader discussion. 

The OFI-SSH Working Group will review submitted nominations, develop a short list of potential speakers and, based on follow-up discussions with short-listed candidates, develop a program for the speakers’ series. It is not necessary to contact the nominee at this stage but feel free to do so if you wish. 

The deadline for nominations is July 7th 2021. Nominations can be sent to Barb Neis, Chair, OFI-SSH Working Group at bneis@mun.ca.
