Integrated Earth Systems (IES)

The goal of the Integrated Earth Systems (IES) program is to investigate the interplay among the continental, terrestrial, and interior systems of the planet. The program provides an opportunity for collaborative, multidisciplinary research into the operation, dynamics, and complexity of Earth systems that encompass the core of the Earth through the surface. Innovative projects that explore new research directions beyond those typically considered by core programs of the Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) are encouraged.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Interdisciplinary Symposium on Place at WSU

Seeking proposals for PechaKucha presentations centered around the theme of ‘Place’. The places in which we live, work, commute and spend our leisure time, effect us in myriad ways, both tangible and intangible. They can shape our reactions and emotions, our sense of health and safety, our ability to participate in society, and the people we can become. Issues related to place reach across a full range of disciplines including cultural studies, geographic and environmental issues, architecture and psychology, to name only a few.
Presentations should be centered around the topic of how place has determined, shaped or
affected research projects to provide deeper insight into our understanding of place collectively.
