Social ecologists at the Left Forum in NY City




LF'14Once again, faculty and associates of the ISE will be participating in several panels at the annual Left Forum, scheduled for May 30th – June 1st in New York City.  Following huge turnouts that stretched the limits of available spaces at Pace University, the Forum has been moved uptown to the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, just west of Central Park and Columbus Circle. The theme is “Reform and/or Revolution: Imagine a World of Transformative Justice.”  Featured speakers this year include Harry Belafonte, Angela Davis, Cornel West, David Harvey, and over 1,000 more. Registration information is available here. These are the panels we’re involved with:
