Tuesday, December 13, 2022 - 8:45am to 10:30am
Hybrid Event - UMass Amherst Machmer Hall E20 (ISSR Lab) & Online via Zoom

Join us on Tuesday morning, December 13 to renew the annual tradition of the Social Sciences, Humanities &  Environmental Network breakfast - in person starting at 8:45, or join online at 9:00 am.

SSHEN has not gathered as a group since fall 2019. There is much rich work around UMass and the Five Colleges related to the environment these days, and the social sciences and humanities have a distinct set of perspectives that are stronger and richer if we are talking to one another. For this reason, we wanted to bring together the social science network--and our humanities colleagues, who were already a growing part of the network, but have been officially added to the name.

To this end, we are returning to the annual reading day SSHEN breakfast. On December 13, please join us in person at the ISSR Lab (Machmer E20) or by zoom for some networking and planning.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Thanks and all the best,
Eve Vogel and the IDS team, with support from the ISSR team
